At Deluxe Bird Cages, I’m all about spreading valuable information about birds and their care, as well as helping you find the greatest deals on the best bird cages and accessories from all around the world wide web.
I’ve been rescuing birds since I was a little kid and I found a robin that had recently encountered a less than friendly cat. I was in tears when I presented the bird to a lady on my block who I knew worked with animals and begged for her help. Over the next few weeks, we nursed the bird back to full health so that it could fly another day, and my journey toward low key avian activism began.
As I got older (and learned more about the laws governing our interactions with wild birds) my strategy for bird rescue changed to caring for an injured bird I found until I could notify the local wildlife rescue to pick them up and take them to a professional. Even though I can’t be there every step of the way, I like knowing that I’m contributing to the long life and health of my local bird population, and I could never pass by a bird in need.
Just a few weeks ago a storm destroyed the nest of a pair of Robin’s that live in a tree in my backyard, depositing three tiny baby birds right into the mud. After calling my local wildlife rescue I knew just what to do, and I’m going to share it with you fine people, so you can know exactly what you are doing if you ever encounter this situation!
Some of you might have heard that handling a baby bird makes it smell too much like humans, and will cause the bird’s parents to abandon it. This is incredibly FALSE! Birds actually don’t have a very keen sense of smell, they rely on sight and sound to locate their baby birds. The best thing to do if you find birds that are too young to be out of the nest is to place them gently in a woven basket (like an Easter basket) and then place the basket securely back in the tree the original nest was in.
That’s it! The parents will easily be able to find their babies when they settle into their new nest and start chirping for food. Make sure to put them in something that will drain well if it rains (hence the basket) so that you’re baby birds don’t drown!
What does this have to do with bird cages?
Well, my thought is that if you are anything like me and you want to help even our wild bird neighbors, then you must want only the best for your own little (or big) bird.
I want my best feathery friend in the world to have a swanky place for his own, and I won’t settle for less, my guess is you won’t either!
Bird care isn’t just about fancy homes for your feathered friend though, this site is also dedicated to finding the best information about bird care and sharing it with you so that your bird can have a happy, healthy life! Too many people get into bird ownership without really considering the time and effort it takes to properly care for a bird, and I really want people to be able to make informed decisions about if a bird is right for them.
I’ve taken the time to sift through all the best bird cages and accessories I could find online from multiple outlets, and I’m presenting them here for you. I want you to be an informed consumer and I’m going to do my best to present only the best options for your perusal, so you don’t have to worry about getting a dud of a cage that will make you and your bird unhappy.
I want you to find the right bird cages and accessories for your feathered friends with the minimum amount of hassle for you. I also want you to be able to come here for new and interesting information about birds so that you can give them the best care possible. I’ve gone through a thorough vetting process for all the bird cages (& accessories!) you’ll find on this site, so you can be sure that they are the best you’ll find from multiple sources across the web.
