Highbrow living isn't just for us people anymore--more than twenty artists and designers from around the world have devised and constructed a colorful array of modern birdhouses far from the nondescript snooze-inducing wooden fare.

They range in size from a six-inch creation to a 2-foot birdhouse...Modern Birdhouses' sleek architect-designed homes made with oil-finished teak, stainless steel screws, and sandblasted aluminum roofs.
