Last year, for the first time in over 10 years my husband and I decided to put up a Christmas tree. We bought a small live blue spruce. But we no longer had any ornaments, having long ago given them away to family and friends. Having 7 wonderful parrots who share every aspect of our lives, and who are very inquisitive and mischievous, we knew that whatever we choose to decorate our tree with would have to be parrot safe.
I found some very cute Christmas/Winter themed rubber duckies, then collected an assortment of other toy parts, plastic rings and stars, wood disks and blocks, birdie bagels, beads and bells, that I had left over from varoius toy making projects.
Tie a loop in one end of a length of poly rope (or cotton, hemp, leather, or stainless wire).
The size of you loop will depend on the type of tree branch you will be placing it on. If you want to make these as just bird toys, make the loop only large enough for a quick link to pass through.
I find that using a small pair of needle nose pliers or long tweezers will greatly help with threading the rope through the duck.
Merry Christmas to All!
