This is a Suet bird feeder made from a cedar log (rope/chain not included). This feeder does not use conventional bird seed, but rather suet feed. Several 1-3/8" holes were drilled into the log for the feed. Additional 1/2" diameter, 2" long, homemade red oak dial rods were added as well. Even though cedar has a natural resistance to mother nature, I have coated it with Spar polyurethane (for outdoor protection).
Body Length: 44"
body average diameter: 4" - 5-1/2"
weight: 14lbs empty
The feeder has a eye screw in the top and is designed to be hung from a tree branch, under house eves, or by other means. Rope or chain is not included. Suet feed not included.
The feed that is used can be made at home. Rather than using regular bird seed, this feeder requires suet feed. This is bird food made out of Peanut butter, corn meal, and lard.
Recipe: Mix 1 Cup Lard (soften first), 2 Table spoons of Peanut butter, and 1/2 Cup of corn meal. It may not sound very yummy or even healthy for us humans but birds love it and require the fat. Squirrels seem to not like this mixture! But, if you add regular bird seed to the formula, squirrels will invade the feeder. This suet feed does not need to be refrigerated during storage.
