Have you met Jr., Richard and Ralph? Three distant cousins of Beaver Cleaver? No, they are the three different models available from Modern Birdhouses , a small company manufacturing a sleek, modernist twist on an old classic.
The birdhouses, named after J.R. Davidson, Richard Neutra, and Ralph Rapson, are both elegant and eco-friendly. Inspired by the pioneering architects of the 1940s Case Study Houses Program, the birdhouses comply with a contemporary standard, utilizing sustainably harvested teak certified by the Rainforest Alliance’s SmartWood  program. Trim is made of aluminum and stainless steel. The houses are meant to accommodate ?common cavity-nesting birds,? which include chickadees, bluebirds, wrens and swallows. Hang your birdhouse and dig up your binoculars. Birdwatching days are here again ? and this time the birds are coming out in style.
