After a neighbour's Cockatoo (she is a wildlife carer) destroyed the top of our au$500 umbrella, I wasn't impressed but didn't mention it to her ( she is doing such a great job for injured birds) although it was the second one that this had happened to. Cockatoos in the wild crack macadamia nuts like peanuts.
A subsequent storm sucked up inside the topless umbrella and flung it out of its "well protected" spot beside our pool.
Before tackling the storm broken ribs I got a quote on the canvas repair which was $100. I accepted but due to the canvas fade I opted for a contrast colour which I thought best=black.
I then setabout using aluminium angle I already had in my spoils and repaired the two broken ribs.
Cheap $100 canvas umbrella. P.s. The bird returned to our other umbrella so mentioned it in passing so the poor thing is caged permanently now in an avery but better than the 1 cubic metre usual cages that folk keep them in.
