We neglected to coat it with a clearcoat to protect it from the elements, but we'll make another and be sure to do so. It has already has repeat visits from a family of titmice, and squirrels, and one bumblebee who we had to let out due to him bumping into the glass *grin*.

Thank you to all who have posted feedback. As I mentioned hubby saw this in another's yard, so we are happy to know some of the origins of it, thank you! And I did have a few photos of a regularly visiting squirrel that turned out blurry, but we don't mind them visiting, we aren't overrun by them, yet *grin*. I use a mixture of cracked corn and black sunflower seeds, it actually took quite a while for the squirrels to seek it out, a family of five titmice took to it fast. We are looking to install a few more around the yard, thank you again for the feedback!
This is the Beverly Hills Mansion of bird feeders. What a wonderful (& useful) piece of artwork! I'd cut the holes a bit smaller so the squirrels & rats don't steal the birds food!
Sadly, we had to take our bird feeder down because it was attracting raccoons & this made us fear our cat would be their next meal!
Thanks for sharing. I do believe this is on the top of my"to do"list. I give it a 10. Good luck on winning!
I have had one in the past where the squirrels were plentiful. We had both the brown and the black. I had great fun watching the squirrels and their antics. I think the idea for this came from "Birds and Blooms" magazine. I am sure they have archives if anyone would care to make one.
I have one too. You'll love watching the squirrels fighting over the food; they don't like to share. :)
