Anodized you mean?
Aluminium isn't toxic to birds. Anodized aluminium should be also safe as it is a controlled version of aluminium oxidation. To the best of my knowledge aluminium oxide isn't toxic to birds, not if handeled, not if ingested.

The one to watch out for is galvanized mesh. Galvanized metal contains zinc, which is toxic to birds.

Galvanization is done to iron or steel to prevent rusting.

What kind of aluminum mesh? If your talking about aluminum “screen” it’s not very strong.
