AVIARY


AVIARY. A place set apart for the breeding, keeping, and feeding of birds. Laenius Strabo, an opulent and luxurious Roman, was the first who introduced aviaries upon an extensive scale, and erected one at his villa near Brundusium. Varro, however, outshone all in his ornithological buildings at his country house near Casinum. He informs us that in his days there were two descriptions of aviaries: one for containing birds intended for the table; and the other, for birds remarkable for their song or plumage. The former were built entirely for use ; but the latter were often beautiful pavilions, with a saloon in the centre, for company to sit in and enjoy the melody of the feathered songsters. Aviaries have never, in modern times, equalled the splendour of those of the Romans. The Duke of Bedford's aviary at Woburn Abbey, however, is of great extent and value; and Malmaison, one of the palaces of the late Emperor Napoleon, contains an aviary at once large, elegant, and well stocked with birds from all quarters of the globe.
