Simple bird table practice


#1

Seen as though the colder months are approaching, I chose a simple bird table for this afternoons sketching. Very easy to make and serves its purpose…

EDIT- Whoops, got distracted and forgot the roof cap, its on there now!


#2

I’m wondering if there will be a single bird who used the hole as the entrance :wink:


#3

Fat birds definitely not, but I would call it more “artistic decoration”. :grinning:


#4

Perhaps you need an Enter Here sign.
No doubt that would work just like the Deer/Wombat/Frog crossing signs.
I’ve never understood why they tell animals to cross in such dangerous places. Why don’t they give them a crossing where there are no cars.


#5

Newer bird feeder designs try to prevent the spread of diseases by preventing the birds from walking in the fodder.


#6

Just for fun, taking the feedback into account…


#7

Had another tinker with ideas of the feedback. This one has the infamous hole removed, a mesh feeder added and also a dowelled floor to avoid the standing water problem…


#8

Somehow it makes me think of something else used during the French revolution.
Don’t know why though.


#9

I think you’d struggle to get your head through, though…


#10

Great idea to go with the dowels. I like this revision a lot!
