Hi everyone ! Here is my very first log bird feeder . It is 30” wide 29” tall and 24” deep .
The top roof lifts up to fill the house .It should hold a fair bit of seed .

Great feeder, hopefully you don’t have to fill it very often.

Wow, looks like the bird houses, this will blend right in with them. Does the seed come out through that slit at the bottom or does it come out other places as well?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments . The roof material is barn master steel . I cut a 3/8” slit on the bottom of the front and back for the seed to come out .

This meets with the standards you have set for your houses. Very nicely done.

Hey John;
40 lbs empty? That means 90 lbs when open for business? Your work never ceases to amaze me.

BTW. Thanks for the information you sent me. I’ve already included it in my book. I’ll send you a copy when I finish.
Always good to see your work.

Another beauty…..The birds are getting better houses then the rest of us these days….It might pay to get tarred and feathers….and then move in….LOL.

Those feeders are works of art though for sure… get the enjoyment of watching the birds when they are eating….and then the beautiful feeder to enjoy when they are not…..a winner in any book.
