Lennie and the Long Perch

Recently, to encourage Perry & Lennie to explore a bit more outside their comfort zone, I rigged up a long perch between the two cages.
As the cages are both the same & alongside each other, when their main, middle doors are open, it lends itself to having a perch connecting across them. It just needed to be a long perch, which fortunately I have. Once in place, Perry & Lennie naturally ignored it, but at least were not scared of it. Extra encouragement was needed, so I pegged some seeding grass to it. Eventually, Lennie decided it was worth braving this new perch for the treat.
When I saw him jump on the perch, I grabbed the camera & filmed:
As you can see there was the obligatory faffing about, a brief chew of the prize, followed by tucking into grass nearer to him!
