    Save them to your computer and then magnify them

    I made this very easily and found it to be much more effective than a T-stand (which my birds find boring and being flighted, they can leave as they please...). It allows them natural foraging behaviours and cleans up nicer than a T-stand too.

    I, on the other hand, need the t-stand because mine would be constantly climbing off of a table top one. Loki looks like he's really enjoying his! Must be nice to have a bird that will actually sit still for a minute!

    She sits on it because she is entertained. She most certainly will walk or fly off (100% flighted, is aware of it and uses it frequently) when she is bored but because she has toys, food and other things that keep her busy, she stays there. I guess the T-stand seems more restrictive to me because a non-flighted bird has no choice but to stay there. I guess some will learn to climb down the pole but most don't figure that out. I prefer giving Loki the freedom of choice (as much as she can in a house anyway!)
