Porch to Aviary - This Summer's Project....
I've always loved finches, and for years had societies and sweet little waxbills living in dome-shaped canary cages suspended from the ceiling of our breakfast room - you can see part of the room just on the other side of the tall glass panel, at the end of the porch.
But keeping birds in the house can be quite a mess, with seed spread all over the floor and throughout the plants growing below the cages.
Also, some people, especially my dear brother, were troubled by seeing birds living out their lives in relatively small cages.
The new aviary will provide enough room for my tiny birds to perch and fly around and generally have a great time.
And the view from inside the house, through that large unobstructed pane of glass, should be fantastic!
