I like it, that a Norwegian Blue?
Bill Phillips: I think it could be Ray
Pauvre oiseau enfermé dans une cage.
Bill Phillips: Happily it was not a real one. I don't like seeing birds in cages

so very beautiful
Bill Phillips: Thank you Kindly Sherri
This is just lovely! Nicely seen and executed sir!

I don't know if you posted a video... or what - but your site is giving me a "500 Internal Server Error" whatever that is...
Bill Phillips: Yes there is a video of a 1900 recording of the song. I guess it can't be viewed in the US

Oh yes, very Victorian

Their obsession with caged birds is all rather strange to us in the 21st century..
Bill Phillips: They had a thing about having glass cases full of stuffed ones too.

The smallest kind of zoo. Well probably not.
Bill Phillips: I suppose a beetle kept in a Matchbox would be smaller

This is so beautiful, love this scene, Bill. Look at that curly thing that open and closes the window....don't you just love those old designs..
Bill Phillips: I do indeed Lady P. I am starting to feel like an old design myself
Gotta love the silhouette effect here, Bill. How delightful.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Kindly Ginnie

Quite a traditional look the cage. I wonder if the bird looks out of the window and yearns to be out there?
Bill Phillips: It would do I imagine were it a real one

It's a long time since I have seen a bird in a cage, thank goodness. But yours is a treasure
Bill Phillips: Do people still have budgies in a cage? Ange's grandad had one
Nice shot Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Frank
I wonder if people keep birds in cages, my parents had several Budgies over the years. Goes well with the video.
Bill Phillips: Ange's grandad had a budgie, the song gave me the title

A gilded cage above dark depths.

Good picture, I like it.
Bill Phillips: Then my work is done Louis
I have never seen a beam pass by a dormer like this!
Bill Phillips: This is England Mary. All things are possible
