I have a new fetish and I think it's kinda sweetish..
I find myself constantly making bird feeders! There is never a container that gets emptied that I am thinking, "Hmmm.. would make a nice feeder!"
I think I've out done myself today and can say I've definitely gone crackers over my new addition!
I had a huge animal cracker container that has taken us months to finish but today was the day when the cracker container went outside to serve it's new purpose. It was the first feeder that I've used sticks as perches, as all my others have dowels or cooking spoons in them. What a brilliant idea this was as the mouth is definitely large enough for 'no hassle' fillings.
Like my other specimen feeders I was figuring on the birds waiting a few days to test it out, but to my surprise they hopped right on it enjoying my new addition.
I wonder if it will be as popular as the traditional bottle feeders I have up as these seem to get emptied first!
Maybe you can help me? I am in search of the Red Cardinal to visit my feeders but I never seem to attract them. They are a Northern Bird and are in my area as I've seen them around but they are boycotting my feeders for some reason. Any advise fellow birders? What kinds of bird seed do you use? Maybe my entree is not pleasing?
What say you birdies?
