A Couple of Repurposed Bird Feeders

I was lucky enough to run across another vintage Alvin space heater.  They make a great "shell" for a bird feeder foundation.  I decided to feed the birds with this one 180*!  The birds can feed from either side and also from the tray inside.  On the second feeder I've been thinking of ways to incorporate my old Packard hubcaps.  Finally got some inspiration for this hanging feeder with the counterweight at the bottom

SNelson, in the pic it's hanging from my bird feeding metal post with four arms. But this model can sit on a flat surface or be mounted to one just as easily with its flat surface.
