January New FO Challenge Bird Seed Catcher

Meyer Parrot Pebbles with new DIY Seed Catcher
This is the first month to post the new FO we started for the month of January.  The project can be big or small and there is no need to actually finish it.  Since I started the Lone Star Quilt in December it doesn't count.  So instead I made a bird seed catcher.  In this case it is less to catch bird seed and more to catch the newspaper Pebbles our Meyer Parrot likes to shred.  He is 10 years old and has been with me since his teenage-bird-hood.  I recently turned his cage around to make it easier to give him kitchen peelings and scraps, which works out well, except it allows the news print from the bird cage to fall in the cat water bowl which I find rather unpleasant to say the least.  This sorted everything out and only took a couple of hours over this past weekend.

If you'd like to join in our FO Challenge feel free to get more information here with Cat Patches as our hostess it's sure to be a fun year.

Clever idea - I had parrokeets and remember the seeds a-scatterin'!

what a cutie! We have a scarlet macaw, but there is a grate between the bird and the bottom of the cage, he can't get to the newspaper.

That's a really clever idea. I've never heard of anything like that before. When I was growing up, we had a canary and he would throw seeds out of his cage like he was a major league pitcher. It was a mess.
