Bird Feeder Turns With The Wind
Omer Hachey got tired of watching bird seed blow around the yard when the wind picked up around his Madran, New Brunswick, home.
  So he decided to make a bird feeder that rotates with the wind like a weather vane.
  The feeder housing is made from a couple refrigerator crisper drawers, screwed together and mounted on an old water pump housing that acts as the bearing. Two 1-in. pieces of wood extend out from either side of the feeder to catch the wind to rotate the feeder.
  A plastic bucket mounts upside down below the bearing to keep squirrels out.
  “This feeder saves a lot of seed and it’s fun to watch,” says Hachey.
