Eco friendly bird feeder made from vintage, durable, used plastic traffic lenses.
Amber "yellow light" roof is 12" across in diameter.
Aqua/blue "green light" detachable base is 8" in diameter.
Overall height of bird feeder: around 16 inches long.

Additional materials include stainless steel cable, up-cycled rubber washers, and various hardware to build this feeder. The "s" shaped hooks that connect the base and the roof are up-cycled used brass chain link. I have stamped a bird image into several of the cable stops on the feeder.

A GREAT SHORT VIDEO!

The design allows for the base to be removed from the top and therefor very easy to clean. Also, if you are new to back yard bird feeding and need a little extra help attracting birds, the base can be hung without the roof, making the bird seed more visible.

The used lenses are dirty, I clean them and use plastic polish to rub out the scratches-This does a good job, but some scratches remain, maintaining a sign of their history.

Due to the nature of up-cycling, some slight variation can occur among the lenses and hardware. However the differences are very minor and do not affect the overall look of the feeder, and in general are not even noticeable.

Keep it simple; recycled materials bird feeder. Rock on!
