This bird feeder is a visual great improvement on the typical bird feeders that are normally seen in peoples backyards and on their porches. Where the typical bird feeder often have plastic incorporated in them and made with bright colors, sticking out like a sore thumb, this design is far more sleek and pleasant to look. However, I do have some concerns regarding the colors, birds are naturally attracted to brighter colors so the sleek design may end up bringing this feeder less traffic than desired. Overall I really enjoy the less traditional route followed here and if the functionality holds up then I would recommend it to any bird watching fanatic. Furthermore, for those more curious, the designer has put on his website various parts of his process including sketches, designs and even a video showing a prototype being manufactured.
