    They are beautiful, and I would love to make them... so now I have to go find someone elses instructions.. . Cuz frankly this is basically a photo album. The only instructions are the obvious one we can figure out ourselves..

    What kind of drill? Is there any prep or precautions when drilling glass? What kind of glue?

    What a unique way to attract birds to your garden area. These are so unique and I am sure noone else has one like these. They are AWESOME.

    I guess I must Google the word ferrel. 🤔

    The only time I have heard of the word"feral, but pronounced the same" is regarding wild, normally,domesticated animals 🐈 such as a wild cat.
