Pole-Mounted Homemade Bird Feeder Equipped With 42-in. Dia. Top
My pole-mounted, homemade bird feeder is equipped with a 42-in. dia. top that serves as a roof. A 32-in. dia. bottom tray catches any scratched-out seed and keeps it from falling to the ground. It also makes the unit squirrel-proof. A pair of bird feeders hang from brackets welded onto the pole. Both the roof and tray were made from plastic sewer covers that I got from work. The roof is bolted to a disc blade that's welded to the pole. The tray really reduces seed waste. It's supported by lengths of chain connected to the roof. Because the roof is so big, birds will keep on feeding right through rain and snow. (Brian Dickinson, Box 36, Site 3, Rt. 2, Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada T4T 2A2 ph 403 845-5259)
