In the spring when they are trying to nest we have Bird Wars here on the Ponderosa, but lately since it has been so cold and snowy we felt sorry for the little guys and make them a feeder. Now usually people have little log cabin or other fancy shaped feeders, but we made this hillbilly feeder from a metal trash can and an old plastic bowl--a bright orange bowl! The trash can keeps the squirrels from climbing up. It may not look like much but it seems to attract them in. Along with store bought bird seed, our feathered friends get old cereal or crackers or chips from the Ponderosa kitchen. They even ate some left over banana pudding today!
