This is a birdfeeder modeled after buildings from the late 19th century. The building is approximately 11” x 22” without the sidewalks. The birds walk all the way around the building peeking around the corners to make sure a bigger bird is not already there. It loads from the roof and has conduit inside the corners to drain the water from behind the parpet walls. The hopper only occupies the center 1/3 of the structure to keep the weight down as much as possible. The hopper still holds almost 4 lbs. of seeds. I made the feeder from old cedar barnwood, reused fence pickets, scaps around the shop, sheet metal windows and hopper roof, and FRP panels for the roofing material.
