A cute bired feeder that the squirels are convinced I made especially for them; they fit perfectly into the little hopper under the roof & help themselves to only the best seeds (and scatter all the rest).  A gift for my folks; it's made from an old concrete saw blade; the main circle, a copper roof with steel supports, & a stainless steel hopper that was for a grain conveyor belt.  Oh, & I couldnt resist adding some piston pump things with the brass tops & old keys hanging from them :)  The birds might be starving, but the squirels are fat & happy!!!
