Have you ever wished you could have your house and eat it, too? Not so practical…unless you are a bird (or Hansel and Gretel). But for our feathered friends, the wish comes true with Atelier Oi’s Edible Birdhouse. This cute and crunchy birdhouse is a great landscaping option for bird watchers, as it is both a bird house and a bird feeder – making it doubly attractive to your fly-in visitors (and suited for birds with Modern sensibilities). Of course, there’s just one problem, if you eat your house, you don’t have it any more. Guess you’ll have to buy a few backups.

    Bird Feeders are a nice idea, and i thought nothing bad of them until a vet pointed it out.
    Bird Feeders are BAD.
    Bird seed packets typically say “Not fit for human consumption”. Why is this? Exactly what is in there that makes it harmful? What do they use to stick the seeds together?
    In addition, feeders contain seeds that birds would not normally have access to. The pictures show a lot of sunflower seeds in the mix, which are very fattening.
    Birds congregating in the same place makes a good place for spreading disease.
    Sick and diseased birds that cant forage elsewhere can get an easy meal at a bird feeder. If they breed, they can reduce the genetic fitness of the population.

    Nice idea, but one thing comes to mind. Are the seeds used suitable for our native birds? If a high proportion of the seed is not, they will simply peck off the unsuitable ones which fall to the ground providing a regular feeding place for rats who are not at all choosey! Not so good?
