Build a Better Birdhouse, or Feeder: New Designs in Avian Architecture

by Malcolm Wells
 
Most birdhouses, according to "underground architect" Malcolm Wells, are "silly-looking boxes embarrassing us out of doors. We owe it to the Creator of the birds if not the birds themselves to give it our very best shot; to say, somehow, in human terms, what they say so movingly in grass and twigs and straw".
-- The author has been giving it his best shot for over

Overview

Most birdhouses, according to "underground architect" Malcolm Wells, are "silly-looking boxes embarrassing us out of doors. We owe it to the Creator of the birds if not the birds themselves to give it our very best shot; to say, somehow, in human terms, what they say so movingly in grass and twigs and straw".
-- The author has been giving it his best shot for over 40 years, creating little habitats of weathered wood that belong to and blend elegantly with the landscape. The 25 easy-to-follow designs presented here (with the author's humorous and philosophical asides) will make both birds and people happy.
