For Kayla

Got some shots of the aviary from different angles. Ignore the metal perches in there. We put the high ring perch right in the corner because he loves to look out over the fence. When we tether him again we will remove the perches all out except the bow perch you can see on the floor

Basically, there are four natural perches, all cut from the woods by my house. The mesh is 2 x 2 x 2 I'm pretty sure. The door is about almost 6ft I think. It cost me 500 to have built for me. It also has a feeding hole on the one side because when he is loose, and if I'm away, somebody else has to feed him. They wont be allowed to go in there so they have to do it through that!











I hate this thing they do with their feet











Terrible flight shot but okay considering it was a mistake haha!





Taken through the feeding hole



Didn't realise how wonky the perch was, straightened it after



At the front it is 8 tall, at the back just ove 6 1/2, it's 10 in length and just about 8 wide

I love it. I'd love to go into falconry. I don't know any master falconers, though.

Thanks, that looks great! Gives me a good idea of what I'd have to build.
Did you get it built by someone you hired or by a friend/family member? I'm guessing it'd be cheaper if you did it yourself. My dad used to be a carpenter so I'm sure he could help me build one.
I'm not sure what the guildlines are here for building an enclosure/aviary but I'd have to find that out! The Falconry Association here or the Fish and Wildlife people have to inspect it before you get a bird I believe.

Yeah I can imagine so. It's only temp, when he's tethered the perches will all be out and he will have his bow on the middle with his bath beside him. Half of the aviary is sheltered and the other isn't. He loves rain! I'm sure this would be perfect if your bird was tethered. I find it funny how they come to check it out yet you can bang them on a perch on some newspaper in your garage of you like! Haha.

That cool Chalkie looks so cute in that picture where he's staring the right at the camera.

Is this in your backyard?

Missing you always

Lol, I know it's weird how they do that. You have to have this nice enclosure built for them but at the same time you can just keep them on a perch in your house or garage if you wanted.
