Bird House was commissioned and performed as part of Ornithology, a piece to be part of a performance by installation and performing artist Michael Pestel with the Carnegie Mellon University flute ensemble at Pittsburgh Aviary, PA in April 2000. The birds that would be most influential on this work are the flamingos. Their call was so unexpectedly strange; it sounded more like a bark that an actual birdcall. The other characteristic of the call was its quasi tritone quality. The interval became a light motif throughout the work, a kind of glue element. There is also a lot of canonic and imitation writing throughout the piece.
