Here is my newly installed “free” birdfeeder! It is squirrel proof and situated so that it can be seen from any point in the living room. I was driving along in town here after a visit with a good friend of mine a month or so ago, and there it was on the terrace near the curb. I drove past it, turned around, and stopped to load it up!
All this feeder needed to make it operational was a new perch and a cleaning. My husband installed it and I filled it with black oil seed. The birds found it after a few days–this morning house and gold finches were feeding. Later in the day, there were chickadees snatching a seed and flying away.
I love to sit in “the command center” and watch the birds feeding, while I drink something hot and plan next year’s garden! Begonia
