Blackbirds and Bees

Chicago Locals Beware the Birds...
In the past year or so I've noticed an increase in Blackbirds, or maybe it's just that now I've moved near an enormous park. In any case it seems some of my fellow Chicagoans are dealing with some pretty fierce little guys! I for one have not had this problem when riding my bike.

I love seeing new designer Birdhouses, and these are especially nice since they are made out of recycled materials, for Charity auction to be held in London titled The Birds , Bats and Bees. (via dezeen)
