    I agree with Christina, where are the instructions?

  • Amber Cole Amber Cole on Jan 05, 2021

    When drilling, do you need to use tape to keep the glass from cracking or water?

    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.
