Bird Houses In Consideration

Aug 17, 2007
Like many things, bird houses are prone to cycles of infatuation and disregard. Yet through the years these wooden contrivances of kindness have seemed to be a mainstay of yards throughout the United States, Europe and other places. In fact, these bird domiciles are back in vogue once again and, in some cases, are becoming even more ostentatious.

Bird domiciles hold many features of attraction for people. One of these is that they are quite simply cute. To have a small house upon a pole or hanging from a tree is a point of fine conversation for many. As well, the entertainment value of watching birds feeding or entering and exiting these small houses is a point of great satisfaction for many people.I love to watch our little feathered friends and a nice bird house will attract them.

Of course, one of the finer points to bird houses is that of unselfishness. These little homes for our aviary friends give little back in the way of material means, but provide a world of kindness for these tiny, delicate creatures. The fact is, particularly in the spring and autumn, many migratory birds find themselves far from their destinations and in need of some reprieve from the strains of lengthy flight.

Further, bird houses are generally accompanied by the secondary surprise of food within their walls. No bird can refrain from feasting upon the grains and other goodies provided by kind humans. Many times this is the only food or shelter that a bird might have had for some days and the relief that birds receive go beyond expression.

Of course, there is no limit to the numerous types of houses that can be bought or made. In fact, a trend now is to build many of these tiny domiciles right onto one's own home, a point which is both useful and symbolic of nurturing. Security is heightened as a large house helps to protect the tinier house from wind, rain, and other elements, while symbolically, this coupling shows a concern for birds beyond the mere ipso facto of having bird houses in one's yard.

Another trend is to purchase or construct a house that will hold not just one or two birds, but numerous birds, sometimes in upwards of fifty or a hundred. Each of these adaptations and novel changes adds to the lore and luster of this passively fun yet kind past-time.
