You probably saw the 2nd (older 360 video). Watch the more recent one above it.

That video's mesmerizing! I actually have a redneck version of this at home for my birds to fly in; right now, we don't let our quaker parrot out because it's too cold, but our dove and pigeon don't mind the weather.

Actually, we've been considering for the last few months buying this house on the Costa Blanca in Spain since I've gotten a job I can do from home (I have gotten somehow much more productive since I began working with a bird on my shoulder!) and I think that building an outside flying space for our birds could be something good. Plus, the climate there would be much, MUCH better for our little Molniya, since we have to come up with makeshift measures for her to be okay during winter here.

So, if you had the choice, what would you do for your birds to enjoy some fresh air? Would it e better to build a chain-link flying space, to have them fly semi-freely with bird harnesses, or to go for another solution? So far, nothing's already built, so all options are open.

OMG, one of my brothers lives in Torre Vieja which is in the Costa Blanca!!! It's beautiful there and yes, the climate is perfect for quakers.
