My 'makeshift' bird feeder

I have a couple of windows in my house
that look out onto my back yard.
From that vantage point I can see all kinds of birds
and their comings and goings.

Over the years I have lived here, I have put out
several 'real' bird feeders...
and they tended to get watersogged...
or the seed just blew out
all over my lawn.

I decided I wanted to try a new 'feeder'...
and cut a 'door' in a one pound coffee container.
I left the top of the 'door' intact...
as an 'awning' of sorts.
Hopefully it will help keep the rain out of the 'feeder'.

We'll now have to watch and see whether or not the birds will
have anything to do with it...
or if the squirrels will get all the seed first.

Ooh! Good idea! When I'm done with my latest coffee canister, I might be stealing this idea from you! =)
