Flying Saucer Bird Feeder

It's the Blizzard of 2016 here in New Jersey. Can no longer measure the snow as Mr Jam Lord's snow gauge (14 inches tall) is completely buried.

I was concerned about feeding the small ground-feeding juncoes and sparrows that won't perch on the column feeder.

He disappeared into the basement, banged around for a bit, and came up with this magnificent flying saucer bird feeder made from two trash can lids.



It has three legs which extend into the snow about as much as they extend upward to support the roof. Yes, snow does blow in from the sides but the little birds can scratch through it. I had to go out once already, to lift and rotate as the lip was becoming covered in the still falling snow.

What a clever, considerate husband I have!

The birds are even luckier that you have a clever considerate husband.Very Happy
My next door neighbours cats don't allow me to feed the birds here but I help them in other ways.

Nice. Useful man to have JL.

Snow ended yesterday evening. Total snowfall - 23 inches in 24 hours. And here's what the feeder looks like this morning.

Are you sure that's not a Star Wars stormtrooper?
