Bird cages are decorative items/blocks used to capture birds. They work similarly to Butterfly Jars, except they are used to trap birds rather than Butterflies. There are five variants of bird cage: Gold, Silver, Iron, Bronze, and Wood, each made with the respective material's bars.
To catch a bird, you simply right-click on it with an empty birdcage, provided you are close enough; this can be challenging, as most birds tend to fly away rather quickly when you get close to them. To release a bird from a full cage, click on nothing (up in the air) and the bird will return to freedom.
Bird cages don't spawn naturally anywhere in Middle-Earth, but they're not difficult to craft.
