No, not wood.

Sparrow showing off the new feeder.
I drew a feeder for DH, but guess he didn't feel like making one. He bought this yesterday, put it out (yes, I know it's crooked) and within 10 minutes the birds were all over it. (Mostly cow birds at the time) The feeder has space for suet cakes on either end - DH couldn't find any. 

He pulled out the crooked hook and put this single one closer to my window. We, the birds and I, like this better. :-)

Enjoy the weekend ahead!

  2. The birds could care less if it's crooked or straight. I love watching the birds. We have a little Junco wanting to build a nest in a pot next to our patio door. I went out and watered it to let her know if she builds there she'll be building in a swamp.

    1. Hee Hee, Linda! The birds find the weirdest (to us) spots to build their nests.

    1. It's about as much as the other one - has a larger capacity though.

  4. I just toss things out in the yard for the birds, get a lot of doves here.

    1. Many doves here too, they cruise the grass below the feeder.

  6. I'm having an all out war with the Swallows. I like them but do not want them on my small porch with my one chair. Your feeder can hold a lot but I bet they will make short order of that seed.

    1. DH battles with the swallows annually, they love the lawn mower shed to raise their babies. Me - I like them, all summer long they wage war with the flying insects around here.
      Yeah - birdseed goes fast around here.

  7. That feeder is as good as any, right? And being plastic it'll probably last longer. My sister has a bunch of Starlings nesting up on her bedroom patio and they bomb dive everyone who comes up to the house. Not my favorite feathered friends.

    1. Oh dear, that plus the noise they make, not my favorite either.

  8. Interesting bird. Don't believe we have anything like that here.

    1. The bird is a sparrow, maybe a Chipping Sparrow? We have a lot of them.

  9. I think it looks lovely. Sometimes you can buy cheaper than it is to make. And that's ok too I say

    1. It certainly was easier! (Birds emptied the whole thing out in one day, BTW - was hoping it would last longer ...)

I've taken a long break. Sorry. Using comment moderation, I think.
