17 Fancy Bird House Ideas In Castle And Animal Shapes
A bird house, also called nest box, bird box or roosting box, is a small enclosure that people place in the neighborhood for birds to nest in, or in their back yard for their own birds to dwell.
Those who have big houses or estate usually place these nests in different areas around their property, to encourage the local bird population and decrease the rate of extinction.
The modern bird house idea was first invented by the British conservationist Charles Waterton in the early 19th century, to encourage more waterfowl and bird life in the nature reserve of his estate. (Wikipedia)
The idea is now getting more attention due to the continuous deforestation caused by human activities, building and industry. Also those who own big properties benefit from the pretty designs and colors in decorating their gardens.
