The Bird Inca can be a beautiful addition to your home or garden. The Inca birdings have been a popular tourist attraction in Peru and many parts of South America. You will find that the Inca people, who inhabited the Andes mountains over 5000 years ago, were skilled bird watchers. They were always on the look out for different types of birds. In fact they were the first people to use artificial methods of attracting birds to their lands.
The Inca birdings are still continuing today. These days you will find a large variety of birds, both migratory and not. Their song has been known by many cultures. Unfortunately they are being killed off at an alarming rate. Some are being eaten to prevent depletion of their wild populations.
It was in the year zero four hundred and fifty that Hernan Corte was born. He became the first director of the Indies, or Manaus as Europeans called the Inca. He found a place for Manaus, called Xbalesti, in the mountains of Huayna Picchu. This is where he began to build the world's first museums. There he succeeded in breeding some of the wildest species of birds and producing the breeds we know today.
The Incas used many different types of stones, including obsidian. They used it to build the Inca Castle and the Stonehenge. Other stones like obsidian and terracotta were used to create sculptures. Many of these art pieces still stand to this day.
The Inca built the capital of their empire, Cusco, from stone. They also built the world's first airport, the Isabella airport. They were a technologically advanced society and it is easy to see that they would have used such methods as radio and television. Not only were they technologically ahead of their time, but they were the first people to use the very latest in photography.
