Even birds who don't mind the fact that birdhouses built by people don't often look natural might turn up their beaks at these ten weird and bizarre birdhouses.  

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

 

1) Just Say Nose

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

You'd think that feathers, being rather ticklish, would lead to the violent expulsion of whichever avian attempt to build a nest in there. (weird birdhouse images via nathanmac87 above and travel oriented at top)   

 

2) Songbird's Studio

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

You don't have to be The Byrds to live in this “play-house” but it sure wouldn't hurt. We imagine this acoustically sound birdhouse would be an ideal addition to Jimmy Page's yard. Then again, Page would probably complain about the noise once it was occupied. (weird birdhouse image via Joseph Roman)      

 

3) Egg-layers For Breakfast

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

It takes a certain macabre sense of humor to design a birdhouse in the form of an open-mouthed cat's head. One wonders what the neighborhood felines are thinking... other than wondering how to get in on the action. (weird birdhouse image via Kevin Trotman)      

 

4) Bluebird Box

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

Could this be a trick question? We'll give it a shot: do the arrows indicate a bird going INTO the house or OUT of it. Our final answer: BOTH. Mind blown! (weird birdhouse image via Megan Coughlin)  
      
               

5) Bjorkhouse

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

We don't think Bjork actually designed this slightly creepy birdhouse but it, like the unconventional artist, hails from Iceland. We have no idea why the MANY individual houses in this alien avian apartment are of all different sizes, either. Truly, Iceland is a very strange place.

6) Birdhouse In Your Sole

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

What kind of bird would make its home in an old boot? A jay-walker? A goose-stepper? Maybe a sandal-piper? Could poor birds looking to crowdfund the p-lace try Kickstarter-house? So many questions, so little tie 'em. (weird birdhouse image via Tony Alter)      

 

7) Birdhouses 4 Birdbrains

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

We don't want to be overly critical of whomever designed the above birdhouse... but we will anyway, 'cuz, like, that's our job. Suffice to say that birds are smarter (they don't need an arrow indicating the entrance/exit) and dumber (they can't read a “vacant” sign) than most peop- er, birdhouse designers.

8) The Other Pizza Hut

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

The Ogden Nature Center in Ogden, Utah boasts dozens of offbeat birdhouses but this pepperoni pizza house takes the cake... or maybe the pie. No doubt the birds would have liked some anchovies but on the bright side, at least there's no pineapple. (weird birdhouse image via denebola2025)            
               

 

9) Doctor Hoot

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

What is this, a birdhouse for owls? But seriously, the best thing about this cool Tardis birdhouse is that it might look small but it's MUCH bigger on the inside. (weird birdhouse image via Nate Davis)         

 

10) Birdhouse of Horrors

The Top 10 Weird & Bizarre Birdhouses

“Occupied”... doesn't matter if it's an airliner's lavatory or an abandoned birdhouse, you'll want to stay clear and DON'T.. GO.. IN. Not that you'll find much inside if you have the courage to look. Maybe a feather or two, some scattered baby bird bones, possibly a “webbed” foot... aaand we're outta here! (weird birdhouse image via Ken Sutton)
