Just wanted to post a picture of my new bird feeding station. Since I have no trees to hang feeders off of, I saw pictures of similar ones and thought it would work out. I need to move it to a more permanent location but it's been raining the last two days. I also want to get different feeders but this is what I had on hand. Holds 4 feeders and I'm planning on mounting a suet cage along the post. It is very heavy but it makes it very sturdy--the picture makes it look like it's leaning but it isn't.

Made of 1- 8 foot 4X4 post
1- 2X4 cut into 4 equal pieces
deck screws
4 eye bolts and S hooks
1-1/2 bags of fast setting quickcrete
1- 5 gallon "depot" bucket

Think it turned out pretty well!!! Only thing is...I need a step stool to hang the feeders!!! Rolling on the floor laughing

I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

Awesome. You need those pull down thingies they have for hanging baskets so you can pull them down with a long hook to fill them. 😎😁.
