My mother is living in an assisted living facility. She asked for a bird feeder for Mother’s Day to place in their garden. I found the plans on a 4H site on the internet. This was a very easy build and a lot of fun. There were only 2 things I added to the plans. The first was a mounting board on the back of the feeder that reinforced the back for mounting and allowed the lid to raise up without being jammed by the mounting post or tree. The second was a small wedge in bottom of the seed bin that directs the seeed to the opening in the front under the plexiglass. Don
