A log feeder added to my garden.................................... and I made it myself

I have had some lovely birds on my bottle feeder this past couple of weeks... but it is made of plastic.
I decided I would try and make my own feeder... and make it look a little more natural.

 I started off with this piece of wood... and drilled a few holes in it.

 Stuffing the holes with suet and seeds from one of the fatballs.

I only had this old piece of computer lead to use as a hanger... a temporary measure for now.

A couple of twigs for perches...

Voilà... instant approval from my garden birds...

  
...who took no time at all trying it out.

...and a bit more pleasing on the eye than plastic.

This is fantastic! Mr. Squirrel, I'm sure, is in hiding just waiting to pounce!

A great idea, and the birds seem to approve.

Well you see, even old computer leads have their uses. And the birds give it their instant approval!!
