Designer creates birdhouse roof tiles


A Dutch designer named Klaas Kuiken has come up with a nifty idea to preserve homes for wildlife as suburbia encroaches on their habitats -- birdhouse roof tiles.

The tiles consist of terracotta with the same base as a traditional rooftile, but with a birdhouse perched on top that a bird can nest in. The design features a small hole at the bottom for any water caught inside to drain out of, but it might get a wee bit hot during the summer if your roof isn't shaded. There's also the risk of daring cats scaling your roof.
