Chalet Feeder

CHALET FEEDER I built this feeder for quick and practical use. It is born around a plastic tray with support that is easily washable and available on the market.
The CHALET inspiration can be seen in the large, half-timbered roof, which protects the food from the rain, surmounted by a small riser with a stucco flower. Same inspiration for the base where a beautiful little frame surmounts a curtain that I cut out of the wood.
Place the seeds in the tray and attach the ball of fat (in
supplied with the manger) in the hook provided under the roof. Wash the tray often and refuel as much as possible. The little birds
they will thank you.

Most birds are divided into insectivores and granivores. The former have a diet based on the consumption of larvae, caterpillars and insects, while the latter feed on seeds.
During the winter these foods are scarce so the birds are forced to adapt to wild berries and small fruits that are not always available. To find them they have to travel long distances and because of the cold they consume a lot of energy.
For these reasons it is important to offer them food by setting up a manger on the terrace or in the garden. Place it high enough so that it cannot be reached by cats, in a quiet area preferably visible from the window, so you can do birdgardening and observe them from a distance as they come and go.
eat. Always keep it clean and change the food every three days.
It may take several weeks to overcome the birds’ distrust of an unknown object so the sooner we install the manger, the sooner they will approach with confidence.
Treating the manger, once a year, with a final coat of outdoor paint, prolongs its resistance to bad weather.
