In various places around our house we have bird bottles. We first saw these in Williamsburg Virginia and I fell in love with them! Bird bottles were discovered in the Colonial area there in Williamsburg and have been reproduced from their 18th century findings. Small birds will nest in these bottles and are quite fascinating to watch. Last year a family of sparrows took up residence in one of our bottles and had a piece of white foam that resembled a mattress hanging from the bottle, guess it wouldn't fit through the door of their humble abode.
These are just a few of our bird bottles, we have bought one every time we have been to Williamsburg VA. We have bought all but one at the Pottery Factory, which is getting ready to have their big grand re-opening. The only other place I have seen bird bottles was in Manteo, NC. It was a blue one hanging on the side of the Roanoke Island Inn, I never did find them for sale but the next time I go I will be inquiring as to where I can find one for our collection.
