Repurposed / Upcycled Bird Feeder Dust Pan

I had a blast making another variation of my dust pan bird feeders with this vintage chrome and copper finished design. I added an oven thermometer, some vintage chrome handles and some metal edging along with some custom metal treatment here and there to finalize it "for the birds".

    how do you ensure the rain drains off? Or does it not rain on the pan?

    is it sheltered? I don't really have anywhere to feed the birds under shelter unless I fix something to a brick wall along

    Hello ScattyLady! On all of my bird feeders that I make that would be exposed to the elements, I use one of my smaller drill bits and perforate the bottom in many places to allow for quick drainage so the seeds won't sit in water.
