"Ribs 1"

7 posts in this topic

I figured I'd beat the snowstorm and head down to the "bog" and do some "alterations" to ribs1......added a "feeder" to the station(holds about 12 pounds or so of black oil seed)...no sooner did I attach it and the chickadees already were using it!...amazing!.....threw a chunk(pretty good sized chunk grin) of venison on the feeder roof.....now,were ready for some action!.....hopefully! grin....

the sun was actually trying to peak over the horizon early this morning....

Ha.... 12 pounds of black oil seed and 30 pounds of venison.

Great feeder station. I sure wish I could get up there and get some shots of the birds you all see.

Holy moly that thing has to be huge. I drove by there last night and it looked like the deer had been digging in the snow near the road for seeds. I thought maybe you put some seeds on the ground since they had dug out a decent sized hole. I think the feeder I put out holds 5 pounds and that has lasted a week, yours might go all winter. I bet you will have grosebeaks and redpolls in no time!

Lol!....venison was donated from the guys at work from a few weeks ago....kinda glad they didn't strip every morsel of meat off the carcass' grin.....Jay,the feeder really isn't that big...maybe 30" by 24"...threw it together this morning about 6:00.....I did see the "holes" in the snow also....the chickadees and squirrels found some seed I threw out a month ago and are the culprits that did the digging...One lone red squirrel was feeding on the station a few minutes after I finished hanging it....no doubt a deer or 2 pawed(hoofed) around also....Hopefully the birds will be using it(besides chickadees) shortly......
