vertical line Injured one-legged morning dove living for over a year outside on the sunflower seed feeder kept sheltered from the snow. Wait, let me look... Yes, he's there now. Expanded seed holder carved from a 2X12 found under the house as scrap. Shorter length on holding rod under circular roof is more effective at keeping the snow off seed. Additional landing and perch branches provide  greater stability and ease for all. But it's practically the injured dove's home, shelter, head looking out, others feed around him. .

I put seeds out on the deck for the birds and squirrels, so they can come and have breakfast with me, and the damned cats think I'm providing bait for them.

I know, in Zen we say that the rat does not steal, and the cat does not murder, each simply behaves according to its Buddha Nature.

Still I have to make something hanging from a branch that will hold the seeds for the birds and squirrels, but be out of reach for the cats.  If I use a piece of branch to suspend it then the squirrels can climb down to the seeds, but it would be too much for the cats.  Ya?

vertical line This is the arrangement: seed and nut feeders hanging in a tree on string loops without causing harm to the tree, [I have to use step-ladders to refill them]; two tables with seed and nut feeders attached.  One table is a solid platform with four  little corner columns and a pitch roof which keeps other foods dry and protects the birds from rain and wind - the cats never try and jump on to this table.  One table is suspended by four chains attached to the corners of a flat platform, the chains are gathered together at a metal ring and suspended from a cross-member of 3x2 bolted to a post.  One kitten attempted to jump on to this table and learned a valuable upending lesson.  Both tables are sited close enough to trees should the birds require to hide and well away from ground cat-ambush cover. And I also asked the cats to leave those birds alone - occasionally I have to ask.

vertical line Hang a suet/seed cake in a wire mesh holder from directly outside your kitchen window. Put a pole in the ground with tray on top, about 5 feet high, fill with sunflower seeds.
Thistle seed feeders can also hang close to windows, but hang some sticks close to the feeder in front of any picture windows to provide a reflection for the birds to see and not fly into the glass.

And get a dog.

vertical line I had a suet cage hung high up ona poplar.Outside the kitchen widow My daughter would climb the tree to put it there. And there was aboard attached to the window out side.... Seeds are put for the squirrels and birds. You can watch them face to face....Evening Grosbeaks...chickadees...nuthatches.....etc. No cats allowed! And this squirrel would take claim to the ledge and chase all the birds off'Swooping owls at night....weasels peeking at day...cyotes and wolves....its all together. And then think of moonshadows

vertical line This morning: sparrows, chaffinches, greenfinches, bullfinches, goldfinches, robin, blue tits, great tits, willow tits, long-tailed tits, song-thrush, blackbirds, wagtails, rock doves, collared doves, woodpigeons, woodpecker, rooks, jackdaws [the rooks and jackdaws learned how to remove whole feeders from the beech tree - one time,  a rook flew across the field carrying a feeder which he dropped - when it broke open, I could hear the the joyous sounds of his pals],  cat on the fence, dog barking, chickens under the feeders looking up and catching pickings, above the commotion, high in the beech a squirrel sleeps in a big ball of twigs-leaves-drey. Haven't seen the hawk and falcon - sparrowhawk and peregrine falcon are sometime visitors, when they show up you can hear a feather drop, until the rooks and the jackdaws say howdy doody.
