I’m sure your father is pleased and it was a good way to recycle those pallets.
I see one thing that may become a problem. Is there any way for rain water to drain off the “deck.” Besides the exposed deck the roof is draining onto the deck. The water will go through the any spaces in the deck boards until they fill with bird seed and become plugged. Then you may have a bird bath. LOL
