Formerly a weblog focused on Umred, this blog has transformed to delve into topics that align with my interests.

From a cage to a shelter

While “facebooking” yesterday I found this quote by Louise Smith.

You can’t reach for anything new, if your hands are still full of yesterday’s junk.

That made sense and got me started on clearing all the junk from the past – metaphorically and physically. I did take it a bit far though and stretched the clearing-the-junk bit to my parent’s house terrace where I found this bird cage.

I was told that my brother bought it last year when he rescued a parrot (he is all about rescuing snakes, birds and animals) and the cage found its way into the junk since the parrot gained enough strength to fly on its own.

I could not have given it away knowing that someone might use it to keep a captured bird in it. So, THIS is the solution I found.

By breaking open a few bars, and weaving straws and twigs around the remaining bars, my father and I could modify this birdcage into a bird shelter. A weaver bird could have done a better job but oh well! I tried.

Now, I can just wait for my bird visitors and hope that they like it. 🙂
