We've been admiring a collection of warm birdhouses for cold weather, offered by Dille & Kamille, Belgium's version of a hardware store (translation: a shop where everything is beautiful as well as being utilitarian).
Above: A braided Nest Pouch for Small Birds (Top) was designed especially to please wrens; it's €6.50 from Dille & Kamille.
Above: A Birdhouse for Great Tits also offers refuge to pied flycatchers and pimpelmeesjes is €12.50; hang it in a shady spot and out of the reach of the neighborhood cats.
Above: Made of weatherproof spruce, a Sparrows Flat can accommodate a group of birds that likes to nest together; it's €22.50 from Dille & Kamille.
