Vanishing Birdcage is a classic effect where a birdcage, containing a small bird, being held between the magicians hand instantly disappears.

Invented by magician Buatier de Kolta, who premiered it at the Egyptian Hall on May 1, 1875 as "The Flight of the Cage of Canaries". He sold a cage to Harry Kellar, reportedly for a large sum, who premiered in San Francisco on May 15, 1876.
