Garden on Sherlock Street has expanded to better serve its feathered visitors.
A new diner has been completed.
Patio seating only.
A new bird feeder was been purchased for the feathered visitors at GonSS.
It is endorsed, promoted, supported (one of those) by Audubon.
The people at Audubon should know something about birds.
It is also MADE IN THE USA.
It is made from recycled plastic.
According to the label, 30 milk jugs will make one bird feeder.
The entire bottom of the bird feeder has small holes for drainage.
The top of the new bird feeder opens easily to fill. Surprisingly, it holds twice as much seed as our old bird feeder. It is a little taller and the greatest volume is at the top.
The old bird feeder is still being used. It has just been moved to another location.
We bought the old bird feeder years ago. It is made of cedar. It has held up pretty well except the roof started to get bad a few years ago. I covered the roof with some copper colored craft foil I had. I held it in place with thumb tacks. The copper color faded, but the "metal" roof has held up. I think we can get a little more use out of the old bird feeder. We just wanted to have two bird feeders.
