The weather has slowly started to become more favourable to going outside with the birds. Although not quite there yet, there is officially no snow left on our property and the temperature outside is getting warmer. Hoping that the chance of flurries being predicted for next Tuesday will not happen and that we'll be hitting 20 degree Celcius so the birds can start going out in their travel cages. I'm looking forward to them getting a little sun exposure before it gets too hot outside.
For some time I was entertaining the idea of a enclosed deck, but seeing that we don't have too much space in the backyard and the cost involved, I think we'll be going the route of stone patio, which means we'll need to keep using the cages. Mind you, makes me feel better about the investment in aluminum travel cages over the years!
