Los Lunas, NM, United States
A terrific thrift store find with champagne glasses glued to the candle holder cups, each filled with a different type of seed to attract a different type of bird. Peanuts on a string dangle underneath as well as several pine cones filled with peanut butter and seeds. A Hummingbird feeder in the top and an orange half in the top glass to attract Bullock’s Orioles. The clear glasses are excellent for the birds to see the variety of seeds and they are not to deep to reach in.
Week 1: Creative Feeders
Chandelier feeder. A terrific thrift store find with champagne glasses glued to the candle holder cups, each filled with a different type seeds. Peanuts on a string hang underneath and a Hummingbird feeder in the top. The clear glass is excellent for birds to spot the inviting selections, especially the orange for attracting Bullock's Orioles. I also fill some Pine Cones with peanut butter and seeds and dangle them underneath.
