Re: Garden Birds


Rae: there are problems with me posting a photo.

1. I have no camera.

2. The site expects us to utilize a file sharing site to post pictures, I do not use one.

3. I do not use a cell phone, refuse to get tied to one.

I will see if I can find an example on a different site, and link to one.

But much of this design was created in my head, and transferred to the wood that it is made from.

Re: Garden Birds


If one doesn't mind the sort of rustic look, a frugal round feeder or water'er can easily hang with twine of your choice. From a tree limb or a shepard's hook it doesn't matter. Easily removed for cleaning when necessary and replaced.


A rare occasion to see a Towhee in a feeder.

Re: Garden Birds


Startingover, you've giving me some ideas.
the square tray is a good idea...

I'm impressed that
you've discovered that the pesty squirrels don't fancy
safflower seeds...when I come up with a little feeder for
the doves...I'll get safflower seeds; we bought them
once and the birds didn't seem to like them.

I threw out triscit crackers yesterday onto the lawn, the
birds hated them and all spit them out! After the sprinklers
went on and mushed them up...the birds then ate them.
Startingover and de-nagorg like this.

Re: Garden Birds


Actually, it was my daughter that found that info.

Spring nesting season I cut up ribbons and drape on bushes, plus clean hairbrushes and put hair an ribbons in a suet holder. Its so cute to find empty nests later with ribbons woven intÚ them.

Friends remodeling didn't have a door on a back porch. One day found a wren had made a nest inside, in a tool belt.

And if the garage door is open a short time those little spider getting wrens may even build a nest under your straw hat, that resides on a cardboard box with a dilapidated corner, on top of the freezer in the garage.
EDIT: that hat must have taken one hellofah ride to come back from outer space upside down. That'll cause the wren nest to fall out.
