Were there birdhouses in colonial Virginia? It seems that wild birds were not deemed desirable to have around the colonial garden, unless they were good to eat or good at eating insects. Pottery bird bottles as have been found in Williamsburg archaeological excavations, were intended mainly to attract martins, for insect control. These were made at the factory of William Rogers in Yorktown out of local clay.
