Waking up to the chirping birds is a celestial experience to go through. Of all the pets, birds are surely the most enjoyable one with their vocal communication that touches every chord of heart. Domestication of birds is a practice that is ancient enough and dates back to early civilisations. There are even instances of archaic structures made by human for birds.
The bird houses cater to a large variety of architectural designs, shapes and they have also assumed fancy names of the ages. For instance, the ottoman empire has delicate and substantial remnants of bird shelters made of stone by humans.
The structures were made with a vested religious interest. It is believed that the builder of the nest is sure to receive something rewarding from life as a consequent of constructing a shelter for a fellow animal. However, birds and fables related to them are common and widespread across the globe.
