    Is this it @webchirp?

    Wait, is it the bead or the metal of the wire that's dangerous?

    Oh, interesting. I've got one of those three-panel mirrors, but it has no bars/beads. Sherbs sometimes admires herself in it.

    Yes and there is another one with just one bar across the bottom. Any exposed metal on those...

    It looks like that was hung up with a piece of rope? I occasionally use these to offer millet treats. The toy originally comes with a plastic bar that goes across the top. A parakeet would have a much harder time getting in if the bar was used instead of rope. The bar also has a hook for hanging, when this hook is used the top opening is close to the top of the cage (if that's where it's being used), also helping to prevent a bird getting in like that.

    I'm not saying this toy is 100% safe, no toy is, but just a heads up for people who do use these. If you use them properly the chances of this happening are pretty slim. It is only plastic and is meant for small birds, a larger bird could easily chew the bar up and get its head stuck in the cone.

    You can see how close the opening is to the cage when hung properly

    With the bar in place a parakeet would have a difficult (but not impossible) time getting through
