Bird cages

LES CAGES A OISEAUX

When I considered a post about bird cages I was very excited but 2 thoughts came to mind: 1) I really can't stand the idea of a bird locked in a cage. ( the North African proverb that says "better 1 bird in the cage, than 2 on the branch, is fine metaphorically, but not textually at all! better all on the branch, in my book!) 2) Alfred Hichtcock's movie The Birds...well, maybe, in this precise case... a cage...; in any case I will show you bird cages that are lovely, stunning, whimsical and some handsome antique ones, but rest assured, no bird was hurt caged in any way to make write this post, as they say in the movies.

  1. Cheap alternative to "la cage" with the added shelving bonus from Urban Outfitters:
