Here is a link to some metal bird feeders designed to look like growing CATTAILS that knocked me out.

A bird in the hand......can sometimes be a mess.

May be I should get some of them. Birds wont go near the ones I have. Have two round ones for seed with perch's as well as one cedar with the cake and a humming bird feeder. No matter what I do birds wont go near any of them.

wow that is soooo cool! I love the way those look!! hey jimmy, have you tried putting thistle seed in your feeders? I bet within a few weeks you'll be having your yard bombarded with goldfinches like mine! [Big Grin] [Big Grin] (do you have goldfinches in your area though? Is it to hot for them?)

Now that is a really unique feeder! And since I have no trees in the yard, it would be a great way to attract birds to areas where the shrubs are.

Those are sooo neat! [thumb] I can see why they would attract birds. The only thing I'm wondering about is keeping the aquirrels off of it. [dunno] I have such a problem with them raiding the feeders. [Frown] Of course, I guess they couldn't tear this one up. [Wink]

I like those too Loz. They have a lot more detail to them with the smaller cattails and the butterfly.

No Jamie I haven't tries thistle seed. Just the wild bird seed and the cake stuff as well as the Humming bird nector I tried last year. Cindy told me to do just sugar and see still no hummers. I have seen finches around as to what type I don't know Nostly just crows which never come near the feeders and this orange looking bird real prety has a crest like a Cardinal I can't seem to get a photo of him hard as I try. Maybe I should just throw them away and stop spending money have seen some Monarch's here so no reason I shouldn't see the birds.

Hi loz, thanks for posting the link about the cattail feeders [thumb] , they are nice and the price is much better than $19.95 for ONE! [Wink] Unfortunately, I can't use those since they have the plastic seed liners, the squirrels will chew them up. [tears] I like the other ones with the wire mesh, but NOT the price. [Frown] I may check around here tomorrow to see if I can find something like that a little cheaper. [dunno]
