Finding Some Solutions Within Bird House Crafts

Aug 17, 2007
Working with our hands is a sign of adroitness, scientists tell us. While manual labor and even simple prospects like craft work have been looked down upon in modern society, these days there seems to be a renaissance in the crafts field. This includes bird house crafts, which is also on the upswing, with good reason.

There are many reasons why the building of bird houses is making a comeback. These include the increase in stress in modern society, the drying of the waterways for many birds, and the simple desire to create. Each of these aspects will be covered in its turn.

Let's face it: people are stressed out. As the world's population increases jobs become scarcer and less secure, especially as technology and simple specialization are on the rise so quickly. This frightens a lot of people. Fear tends to make us look inside to our own inner-worlds, or the immediate world of nature around us. The appreciation of the simpler things is returning.

One avenue in this light is the making of bird house crafts. The construction of a little home for birds is not only constructive and stress-relieving, but also is an altruistic act which will afford birds protection during cruel winters whilst reciprocating back with a great satisfaction of accomplishment. In today's high stress levels, people are seeking out stress "relievers" and building bird house crefts is one of those "escapes".

Another situation today, just slowly leaking out to the masses, is that the waterways of many migratory birds are being destroyed by mankind and subsequent pollution. Further, many trees which previously afforded birds a refuge are no longer existent, as they've been felled for human purposes. While bird house crafts won't rectify this problem outright, it may offer one minor solution. This is to say that a bird house will give a bird a place to rest along a flight path that may consist of many thousands of kilometers.

Finally, there is the desire to create. We are all gods in our own right, particularly when it comes to creation of structures, be they large as the Great Wall of China, or as humble as bird house crafts, the creation of a small home for our little friends in the skies. Whatever the reason, our tiny aviary friends thank us each time they settle onto a perch, or inside away from the wind and rain. There is much joy to be had with the watching of birds as they take shelter in a bird house esspecialy crafted for them.
