Hi everyone ! Winter is here and it is time to start feeding the squirrels and birds . Originally I built these feeders just for the squirrels but the birds like using them too . The house also helps keep the food dry in the winter and gives them a bit of shelter when they are eating . The feeder is 27” x 19” x 23” tall

I don’t get it, you’re feeding dead skwerlz to dem birdz, or sumfin? ;)

Neat as always, I particularly like the fact that, for once, this one is more of a shed than a three story building, with noisy neighbours all around (like mine!).

Another winner there for certain John! That looks like you are using a ‘glass’ jar for the feeder? What size jar is it and it there any chance a strong wind could dislodge it?

Ron the glass jar is 8 1/2” tall x 7 1/4” diameter . The rim of the glass sits inside the wood a little over an inch so it holds it in there very well . No problems with it ever falling out .
