    I have made a few feeders in the past and with the weather we get in the winter I like to add a little roof. The feeder with the berries is put up in Dec. or whenever it is freezing or snows down. I store the berries in the freezer from Sept. The rooves or lids are from driftwood off the beach. I also use some of the saucers for standing pots on.

    A great way to make sure that the birds' food is covered from the rain and snow. I tried a plant pot saucer here a few weeks ago but, sadly, the 80mph winds bashed it about so much that it got broken. Obviously I didn't secure it properly.:smt090
