a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Playing With An Idea

about turning a light cover and a hub cap into a bird feeder.
Some feathered friends became very curious
sampling the dog food and the orange.
I believe this one was admiring his image.
Word spread
Now I need to decide how to make it straight and functional.

Linking with Saturday's Critters

You are always full of great ideas. I think we can see it is going to be a hit. Great shots. Hug B

Really great indeed. Thanks for sharing!

Make it straight to make it more convenient. Innovative and stylish! But they wouldn't know the difference. They'll find it different only when the offerings they are used to, are empty.

Hello, looks like your new feeder is a hit with the birds. Even the Cardinal is able to admire his reflection. Great shots! Happy weekend!

Sandra said...

super idea, up cycle up cyle.. if you feed them they will come and they did.. the jay must love his color...

Birds like oranges? Who knew?
Clever idea. Will it sit at the base of the tree or will you attach the feeders to the tree?

I do enjoy bird watching. I wonder if the squirrels try to steal the food. They are still running around here gathering stuff. Blue Jays seem to show up in my life at just the right moment.

Great idea! :)

Now that is really clever and I like the fact they can check out their feathers in the light cover.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

You certainly have their approval!

LindaG said...

Looks to me like they like them as they are, Gail. I wouldn't change a thing. :)

Josie Two Shoes said...

Very clever... as usual! Now you have me wondering if birds would be interested in seeing their reflections in mirrors, as they are decked out with such magnificent finery!

This one is food for thought. I have an unbroken outside light glass shade that was left when the new yard light was installed. I keep looking at it wondering what I can use it for......it is too deep for a feeder.....maybe a planter? Maybe I should just send it to you!

Those birds are so colourful.

All the best Jan

Fun idea and the birds seem to be enjoying it.

I'll have to show this to my sweetie pie- that'll give him some good ideas! You have different birds than we do - we do have woodpeckers ( Downy, Flickers, California Acorn, Hairy for starters) White Breasted Nut Hatches, Gold Finches, Chickadees, Juncos, Stellar and Scrub Jays, Quail and Wild Turkeys! But not your gorgeous Cardinals lucky you! Having a bird feeder or two is so much fun! Altho- we do bring them in at night because of our Black bears!
Have a great day!

Sandy said...

Gail,

Again great pictures, and wonderful ideas :-)
