    The first 2 pictures are actually more for the squirrels , chipmunks .They like to dump the food everywhere and with these designs they cant do that . I also get small birds that go in there but the larger ones wont .

    Got 'cha. I'm having a bit of a beef with the mourning doves right now. They tend to shovel the seed off the feeder, seemingly by the handful, looking for their favorite. It's OK, though ; it leaves food on the ground for the chipmunks, squirrels, raccoons and possums .. even crows, for some reason, this season.

    Nice work. I've made a couple feeders myself, but I lean towards the utilitarian end of the design spectrum. Basically seed hoppers. What do you use for the roofing material?
    It's wood dust. Saw dust would suggest a problem.

    It is a product called Barnmaster steel , it is used on pole barns here in Canada . I don't think you have the same thing in the states .

    We have that here. Pretty heavy duty for a bird feeder!
