Shapely bird feeders from the Danish company Eva Solo let you cater to the pickiest avian guest. Made of handblown glass in an appetizing doughnut shape, or of white powder-coated stainless steel with an elliptical midcentury silhouette, the feeders can be hung from a tree or a terrace roof with a rubber-coated cable.

The metal version can also be set into the ground on a slender steel rod.

Both styles were designed by Tools Design, the Danish firm of Claus Jensen and Henrik Holbaek, the team responsible for Eva Solo’s prizewinning product range.

The glass feeder is 8 inches in diameter and 4.75 inches deep, with a 33-inch hanging cord ($49). The metal feeders are 45 inches high for the ground model ($119) and adjustable to 31 inches long for the hanging model ($99). Both metal feeders will be available at the end of the month.
