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!
