3D-Printed Nests Bring Birds Back to Urban Environments
Open source, customizable bird feeders are being created by a global community called Printed Nest
There has been a decrease in the number of birds in urban areas and the Printed Nest team wants to bring them back to the city and make spaces more bird-friendly.
The eco-friendly, egg-shaped, 3D-printed bird nests can be produced in bold colors so they stand out and brighten up your outdoor space, or they can be more subtle and natural so they blend in with their surroundings. The nests have been designed to adhere to the outside of urban buildings such as apartments and offices. Attached to the front is an antler-like perch that acts as a small branch for birds to land on.
