I hung one of the two new feeders yesterday. It’s a new flat feeder to replace the older one the squirrels have chewed up. The one Owen put up today is called a “Fly-through feeder.” Birds can fly in from either side. It also lets us put out two more types of suet and seed protected by a roof.
I have to admit that I thought this would be an attractive frame for those little feathery stars. Sure enough, it’s a good’un. I have to figure out how to hang it and keep the pole out of the picture. I don’t think it will ever hang entirely straight.
Speaking of the roof, this will need to be taken inside when it’s windy. The roof will lift and act like a sail. The feeder will land somewhere in the woods or backyard. That kind of excursion usually causes damage, some fatal, to any feeder, so I’d like to avoid it.
