Foraged Materials for Foraging Birds
Foraged Materials for Foraging Birds is designed for birds who nest in natural chambers like those found in trees, cliffs, and dunes. Made from reclaimed mahogany wood and countertop stone—materials left over from the construction of human dwellings—this birdhouse provides a cavity for nesting and a milled stone bowl that will gather rainwater as a birdbath. “We look forward to seeing these human construction materials getting new life as a home for these resourceful birds,” say designers Miriam Peterson and Nathan Rich.
