I enjoy birds.  When I am sitting in the back yard during the summer, I enjoy looking up from my book to see birds tittering over the seed I have placed on the fence for them.  I especially like the house finches and the gold finches because they are so colorful.  Those little gold finches are the prettiest little guys around.  Feeding them is a simple way to gain a little entertainment.

To that end, we have purchased bird feeders before.  I think, however, the one I like best is the re-purposed coffee creamer container.  I took it and an empty water bottle and modified them just a smidge.  The empty water bottle is the hopper and the creamer container is the magic area where the food collects.  All it took was a little wire and a knife.  And the best thing is, the birds love it.  I filled it on Sunday and it is now empty.  I like it when a plan comes together.
I had to paint it, because that was the ONLY way Cora would let me keep it.  Can you believe she thought leaving it the original color was tacky??

It is still tacky but that is what you call COMPROMISE I hear that is what marriage is all about.
