Default macaw puzzle

I had a customer see the hanging macaw puzzle in my photo album. she asked if I could make it to sit on a perch in stead of it hanging it.so here is what I came up with.

What a great idea. I have 2 of those puzzles in the shop waiting to be fixed. Sis accidently broke one of them by knocking it down and it fell on the floor and broke. It can be fixed with no problems so I think I might have to do what you did with yours. Thanks for sharing the idea.

Great idea I may even like the perch better. I'll have to add it as an option.

Excellent! Buyers don't have to clean the cage either!

I agree with the others....I like it even better with the perch.

Does anyone recall which issue that pattern was in?

I think that is a very clever variation - and refreshing for an older puzzle. I am sure that came out in the early part of this century. But, don't recall exactly when.

Why does that beak remind me of Jimmy Durante??? I can just about hear a "ha cha cha chaaaa!"
