A Review of 5 Different Wacky Bird Box Designs

Feeding the birds is a hugely popular activity, and lots of people buy their own bird boxes to attract their feathered type friends to their homes, although some of these feeders are a tad bit on the wacky side.
A perfect example of this is the Rock and Roll Fifties Diner one offered at some shops, and although there is no question that this does resemble something straight out of Happy Days (all it needs is Rockin’ Robin playing), and it is also colorful enough to appeal to vintage fans out there.
There is another similar novelty bird feeder – styled like a retro gas station – which will attract the same kind of customer. The details incorporated here include tires, signs and petrol pumps.
However despite their candy-colored quirkiness, these novelty bird boxes are still proper bird feeders. The same is true of other themed bird boxes, like the Thatched Roof Bed and Breakfast ones, or the Thatched Country Cottage – both of which are made completely of wood and will be ideal for those who have similarly rustic décor in and outside of their homes. Again, the Bed and Breakfast bird box has plenty of detailing throughout, such as signs and a little table and chair in front of the building, making it and the Thatched Country Cottage charming and whimsical additions to the home.
For those whose interests are more outgoing – say gambling at Lucky Nugget online pokies  you can get a bird box that reflects that as well. The Outdoor Casino bird box from Jackpot City is just as well-designed and made as these other examples, and just as unusual. There is even a sign denoting the VIP Lounge, although you might have a bit of trouble getting the birds to stick follow the rules of the house, while the Jackpot City casino logo is above the main door.
Any of these bird boxes could make a great choice for someone who wants one that actually fits their personality and interests, as well as pleasing the birds.
