The villagers of Colonial Williamsburg might not be called bird lovers today, at least not in the conventional sense. Norm learns this first hand as he inspects the inner recesses of an elaborate dovecote in the backyard of one of Williamsburg’s historic homes. With space for up to 48 nesting birds, the dovecote housed tethered squabs until they were ready to be plucked from the nest for the family meal. Norm’s version of the dovecote is smaller and is actually a perfect accessory to a garden or country landscape.
