Caged Wild Birds (not really)

It's an old wire birdcage. The plastic bottom was broken so I took it off and wired screen wire to the bottom. I wired the door up so the birds could come and go freely. Put some birdfeed on the screen bottom and there, it looks like I have caputured wild birds in a cage. But they are really free.

Pattern or design used: My own design
