How would you like to walk on sandpaper all day?
I’ve seen cages with these things on ALL the perches.
Birds need at least 3 varieties of branch-like perches.
Billions of birds are killed each year due to birds being unable to distinguish standard glass from sky, but bird glass can help with that! Too bad the Viking’s people don’t give a shit.
"The MFSA declined a final meeting with Audubon and on July 17 announced that they would NOT be using the bird-safe glass, Anderson said."

Birds have more of a right to fly safely than these assholes needing a place where people throw balls and get drunk.
A Buddhist Ritual Gets an Ecologically Correct Update
If we were to derive our energy from the sun, wind and water as flowers do, our energy supply would be assured and sustainable. If our economy could be as elegant as flowers, if our businesses could be as beautiful, if trade could be as tender and tolerant, if politics could be as pleasant, if our society could be as supple and soft as flowers, then we would have a resilient economy, resilient trade, resilient politics and a resilient society. So why not be like flowers and act like flowers?
Blossoms and flowers are resilient. They stand out in the wind, in the rain, in the snow, in sunshine – day and night – unperturbed, undiminished. They are resilient because they are flexible and fragrant, pliable and pleasant, supple and soft, tender and tolerant, gentle, adaptable and light. As the Buddha holds a lotus flower in his hand to teach wisdom and enlightenment. As Lakshmi asks us all to include flowers in our families as they are the real fortune.
