Built for the Birds

February 25, 1996|By REBECCA THUSS

They seem to be hatching everywhere. What was once a functional wooden shack is now a charming little pad for Mr. and Mrs. Chickadee. Birdhouses aren't just decorating our back yards and porches anymore, they're also migrating inside to living rooms and family rooms. Finding homes on mantels and bookshelves, they've become a popular commodity in the home-furnishings market. Available in models from one room to six, in stark modern or gingerbread Victorian and in a multitude of color schemes, there's a birdhouse suitable for just about any decor.
