  1. Slide show of little bird’s behavior at the feeder
    I watched the action from the kitchen window and figured I’d shoot a few bursts at them with the 28 to 135 on the 1dm2n. I have a blind on the porch so I went there and like they taught me in the Infantry as a machine gunner FIRE A BURST OF 6.
    Just a little fun and I wish the photos were a bit larger. You can bump them to 150% in your browser if you want.
    You can change the slide time or pause by sliding your curser on the top of the photo frame.

  7. YUP Gale it's homemade brew, MAXWELL HOUSE BTW I got tired of buying feeders for the racoons and bears to destroy so I came up with the coffee can one. It drives the squirrels crazy as being metal they can't chew it but this one they can't get to as I let them have one for thamselves. Thank you for looking.

  11. OK Gale here’s a picture. It’s a plain coffee can and I add a piece of plywood about 8 X 10 to the bottom with 2 screws. On the one in the photo I have sides on the plywood but not necessary. I drill 6 holes in the can about ½ inch up from the bottom and about 3.8 inch wide so the sunflower seed can come through. The plastic cover has a mark right in the center so you just need to use that to mark the can bottom center before you put the plywood on. After you have the plywood on and a hole in the bottom of can and plywood you run a piece of wire (coat hanger, or picture frame wire), but make sure it’s heavy enough to hold the load and the wind. Run it up through the plastic cover and secure it to the plywood bottom with a screw. The job is done. The wrapper will peel off if you want to paint it or you can leave it on and collect advertising rights from Maxwell House. Birds can read don’t you know???:smile: :smile:
