    Love this idea, last year (my first year to live where is actually snows) I took an old metal wire hanging flower basket and filled it with some old misc. nut mixture left over from Christmas and hung it in the tree out back.. We had a wonderful time

      @Susan From Colorado ~ so happy to hear from another nature lover like myself! I enjoy watching the birds and the squirrels and their antics at the feeders, too! Since barn owls hunt their food and don't scavenge, they might not visit your feeders

    @Barb Rosen you are so wonderful to take care of the birds and animals and other critters. I find it so relaxing and enjoyable to watch nature at work and do everything I can to help HER (Mother Nature). Don't you wish everyone did?

      @Sherrie S well, sherrie my sweet lady, you do your part also! So many critters!

    Thank you @Bernice H, I try my best. I can do a lot because my neighbors and I have very large lots for a HOA and we all love the creatures that visit.

    Good idea. What I've done, is buy a large plastic 'saucer' (for underneath a largish pot), put some holes in the base so water could drain out, and my husband just attached some light chain (the sort that you get when you buy a hanging basket) - 3 -
