I’m not sure if birds will actually flock to a Solar Birdhouse, the newest creation from Dutch design firm Oooms, for a nighttime nosh (seems more likely to attract unsavory winged critters like moths) but I’m keen on this birdhouse-by-day/beacon-of-light-by-night concept.
The burning question proposed by Oooms that’s behind the creation of the Solar Birdhouse: “Why would only humans make use of eco-friendly technology?”
Good question … leave it to the Dutch to truly think outside the box. Oooms has released some pretty interesting products in the past like gorgeous Wooden USB Sticks and the LED, wineglass-shaped Glassbulb Light, but this is the firm’s first foray into renewable energy/birdfeeder land.
Of course, a bird chateau is not complete without vittles. I'm not sure what the Oooms folk are feeding them over in Eindhoven, but I suggest stopping by Wild Wings.
