We have a nice view of our patio table in the winter. Just sitting out there not being used… Well, what if it could become a beautiful focal point of the yard as a bird/squirrel hot spot, great for nature-watching while helping the local wildlife get through the cold days?

Just add some fallen branches, the bottom of an old planter, and bird seed.

Now we wait to be discovered…

Thanks for this idea goes to my father in law!

Edit: The following day I have yet to see a bird indulging, but I did witness this scene.

Not the animals I was expecting, but I’ll allow it. ?
