So here in NZ its coming up spring. That means my garden is screaming to be weeded ( Embarrassed heh...) lawn to be mowed ( Embarrassed can I blame SO for that?) and the birds are gettign stalked by my two cats.
I feed the birds bread pretty much all year round, during the colder months though my two lazy house cats are too busy playing inside to care, but come spring they are outside playing, which means the birds dont get a chance to safely eat.
I also have a mother who has ALOT of ice cream containers










taadaaa

and a string dodaa to help the birds make nests  Grin



and heres the shot of kitty from while I was on the ladder (she wanted up)

Great idea! Birdies get to eat and kitties can't get to the birdies! Great way to reuse ice cream tubs too.
