I had seen bird feeders like this in while visiting my daughter in Ontario this summer. Have wanted to try making some as soon as I could get some spare time. The construction of them goes quite quickly as most parts are the same, except the head for most birds. Some wings are abit different. They can be designed and painted to resemble birds in your area. The heads hinge back to reveal a hole where you pour the bird seed mixture, 1/4 square wire screen keeps the seed inside and then the birds can pick it out. The center width is 4 inches and the wings are 15 to 18 long and 7 wide, the first ones I cut out where smooth and last ones I scalloped abit. Fun making them, but the painting takes some time and imagination. The birds I chose are common to this area, Eagle, Wood Pecker, Canada JY, Stellars Jay, and Chickadee.
Hope you like them and hope the birds do too. Comments and questions welcome.
