Wearable Feeder Mask Lets You Get Face to Beak With Hummingbirds

Wearable Hummingbird Feeder Mask

Calling all lovers of birds! A contraption called the ‘Eye to Eye’ is now available so you can get up close and personal with hummingbirds while you feed them. It’s basically a wearable bird feeder that lets you literally come face to beak with the birds as they feed. A miniaturized feeding tube is embedded in the middle of the mask, which means the birds will be in your face while it feeds.

For $80, you’ll get two feeding tubes, two laminated inlays, and one face shield (of course you need one.) Is it worth it? Is it not? That depends on you and on the experience that you’re hoping to get out of it. You can get the ‘Eye to Eye’ mask here.

Bird Photo Booth Lets You Take Up Close Pics Of Flying Feathered Friends


If you’re going to go to the trouble of getting a bird feeder, you’re probably the type of individual who wouldn’t hate having a couple of high quality pictures of the animals you feed. That’s not always easy to do, since birds are easily spooked, but the Bird Photo Booth can help you out. It’s basically just a bird feeder with space for an iPhone or GoPro. Yeah, you have to provide your own camera, but at least it’ll be protected from the elements inside the feeder. And once it’s in there, you can access it remotely either through Wifi or Bluetooth, and use something like this wireless camera application to watch in real-time, and snap pictures when you want. Ok, $150 is a lot of money to ask for a watertight bird feeder that doesn’t even come with its own camera, but hey, it’s not like there are a ton of other alternatives like this out there. At least they’ll throw in a macro and a polarizing lens to help you take better shots.

Morbid And Cool: Bird Skull Jewelry

Fashion accessories can be as much about making a statement as they are about personalizing your look. We’re not sure what the statement would be if you chose to wear the above Bird Skull jewelry, from Calvert County resident Marisa Rand, but you’ll definitely give people the impression you feel strongly about something. Even if you don’t. Which is why we’re digging the pieces. No, they’re not actual bird skulls, they’re shrunken down reproductions. Marisa makes a silicon mold from a fallen bird, then casts the pieces in resin. There are miniature sparrow skull rings, black magpie skull necklaces, and even a parakeet skull necklace. The pieces are very reasonably prices in the $13 to $19 range.
