New Feeder and Stand
While trying to be creative last year I came up with an idea of a stand that would support more than one bird feeder.
The base had to be bottom heavy (didn't want it to fall over)and take some plants in the top half to make it more attractive.
So I had an old Pot(Urn) that served the purpose for the base. Metal pipes,plastic drainage pipes and shepherds hooks completed this creation. Plus this can be moved anywhere in the yard.
Nothing will tip this stand over !
The stand I built works great...a little heavy though.
But there's one problem with our new $49.00 Duncraft Squirrel Proof Feeder...
It's NOT Squirrel Proof !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The center of the bottom just below the seeds is all plastic and our friendly Squirrels chewed half way through it in 2 days to get at the seeds ASAP.
We figured in about 2 more days the bottom would be gone, and they'd get their reward !
So I found a small round piece of metal to cover it, to keep those dastardly squirrels from destroying this new feeder.
Maybe I should contact DUNCRAFT !!
