Junk Bird Cages can hold much more than just a bird; how about a special collection of seashells, driftwood, or even nuts and bolts, or a bird made from old tools wired or bolted together?

Junk Bird Cages come in all shapes and sizes...

They can be planted with succulents, displayed with a salvaged birds nest or two, or to protect special plants from chipmunks or rabbits.

They can be  used as a way to display your eclectic collections, or just to enjoy as is.

There is something really appealing about bird cages, the rustier and more beat up the better. 

Here are a few in my garden;
