    bird feeder

    the starlings were taking over the bird feeder so son took it down and made a cage for it. the smaller birds could get in but not the big ones. soon the starlings gave up and disappeared

    great idea. now can you do something about the squirrels???
    I have a squirrel proof one, they love it and come to eat all day long!!!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Cool.....love ideas that help the "little ones". They are so easily bullied by bigger birds.

    Or one that keeps out the raccoons....they don't bother to snack, they just knock down the feeder and gorge right there and make a terrible racket while doing it in the middle of the night.
    two simple rules for success
    1. Show up.
    2. Pay attention.
    One simple rule for happiness
    1. Kindness counts.

    You have a very talented and artistic son. His idea is so creative and functional, and it's beautiful! Well done.

    The just like deer in West Virginia. The feeder has to be placed high enough so they can't nudge it with their head, spill the seed, and snack away! Very clever little guys, they are!

    Lynnie, my dad rigged up a pulley system for his bird feeders. Lower to fill & then raise it back up. They were hung with wire or clothes line so that if any thing heavy tried to get on them it swung & they'd fall off. He also had it strung up high enough that deer couldn't reach it either.
