Colonial Girl with Birdhouse
- Bird feeders in Colonial days were quite different compared to those
from modern times. Clay bottles hung under the eaves of colonial homes.
The bottles had a tab with a small hole at the base of the entry area
that held a twig that encouraged small birds to perch and linger. Though
it's tempting to attribute their use to an enthusiasm for bird
watching, bird bottles served a more practical purpose: nesting birds
made ideal insect control around homes, kitchens, and stables!
