Step 11: Door

Cut 20x20cm from the remain wire mesh to make a door

Step 12: Wire

Take a wire, cut it into 4 pieces, bend the pieces then use them to attach the door to the cage

Step 13:

Now take another wire, bend it's 2 sides and secure it on the door to use it to open and close the cage

Step 14: Sewing

Put the second grill on top of the cage and sew it with a cord exactly like you did to the bottom one

Step 15: Food Bowl

Take a bowl, make 2 close holes in the back using a scissor, take a wire and fix it in the bowl then attach the bowl inside the cage

Step 16: Water Dispenser

Now make a rectangular hole with the scissor and use a wire to secure the water dispenser

Step 17: The Swing

To make the swing take a long wire, bend it then take a paper and wrap it around the bottom part

Step 18: Tape

Take a wire tape and roll it around the paper

Step 19: Thin Cables

Take 2 thin cables, put them in the swing then attach the swing to the top grill of the cage

You can make a wood perch too by taking a small dry branch from a tree and putting it in the cage

The screen appears to be galvinized, which is deadly to birds. In addition to be far too small for any bird. Please do not do this.

that cage size is only large enough for a canary at best and does nothing for its psychological health. captive birds need corners as a place to retreat to in times of stress. with the round cages being open on all "sides" without corners or a covering will lead to significantly increased stress and a shortened lifespan. I do hope if you plan on cage building for a bird do some real research into their particular needs as they are many and change with each species.
