Ok, the mother-in law has requested a project from me, but I need some help designing it. She wants a cardinal bird feeder. I guess cardinals prefer a flat tray to feed from rather than your usual feeders. She wants to put it under her other feeders which are on a double shephards hook.
My ideas on this: I was going to cut 6 or 8 wedges to make the platform into a hexagon or octagon shape, then putting a 1/2 inch rail along the outside for a perch and to keep seed from spilling off. The issue I have is thinking of a way to make it split in two to get it onto the pole, and also making it removable for bad weather. It will suspend on chains from the top of the pole, but needs a removable but study platform. Sorry I cant draw a picture (Im at work and no scanner) but I hope my description give the jist of the idea.
Any ideas/input it much appreciated!
