I've always been fascinated by birds and their mannerisms, movement, flight. Several years ago I adopted a pair of zebra finches. They were fun to watch and it wasn't long before there were eggs and fledglings. The cage filled up and I couldn't bare to see them with such little flight room. Rather than get more cages, I decided to make my own larger cage - or aviary.
Using some "bones" from an old wardrobe, I added supports, mesh and even made a sliding bottom drawer tray for easy cleaning.
There are new residents in the house these days. Foster (a canary mix), a society finch we call "Cricket" because of his chirpy song, and a pair of orange-cheeked waxbills - yet unnamed. I tried to photograph them - but they're pretty quick and the mesh messes with my cam's focus.
