We have decorative black iron colums holding up the roof over our front porch. Don't these bird feeders make an exeptonal accessory? You know you have a housefull of girls when you use a purple ribbon to tie a birdfeeder to a post. These feeders are made from an old water bottle. I picked up the feeder part at a homeschool convention years ago.We also placed seed inside a clay tray an laid it out on a stool. The seed is an assortment of sunflower seed, finch food and dried fruits. According to the package we should attract every backyard songbird created by God. But with our lazy dog napping on the porch and aimless wandering around, I just hope to see a bird.
