We encourage the birds to use our feeders and likewise the squirrel, hers. The feeders are situated so my wife can see the activity through the French windows from her chair in the lounge. But I like to be organised. Feeding is a daily task and I don't want to spend a lot of time doing it. So here's their food store. It's made from bits I had in the garage, a couple of old ice cream tubs and three canisters my wife was going to throw out.
