The Birds

At work we've got this birdcage, which from one point of view is fantastic therapy. Looking at the birds is a nice distraction, however it also means someone has to clean up the poo all over the large cage; change the water; food; and provide additional maintenance. It's all a fuss.

The Pear Tree
