Our Birdy Cafe is set on a small plywood platform that attaches to our deck railing using 2 clamps.
The feeder is held down by a bungee cord that is easily slipped off when it's time to refill the feeder.
I drilled two holes in the platform, on either side of the feeder, and slipped the bungee cord over the top of the feeder and down through the holes. The ends hook together underneath.
The green and white feeder (purchased at RD1) holds 4 times the capacity of the gold feeder. It is pushed against the post and held down with a bungee cord wrapped around the post and hooked through the carry handle of the feeder.
Remove the skirt by unscrewing the reservoir and lifting the skirt section off the base. Screw the reservoir back onto the base and you are left with what you see in my picture here.
I also remove the hook that hooks through the hole in the top of the reservoir, so I can use the groove in the top for the bungee to sit into.
To be useful to the birds, the feeder needs to be mounted onto a platform that they can land on.
This feeder is mounted onto a small plywood platform that is clamped to a pole that sits about 160cm tall.
It has a perch at one end for the birds to land on.
The feeder is held down to 2 large screw-in eyes that sit on each side of the feeder. A bungee cord then goes over the top and it's ends hook into the eyes.
I also hammered in four small nails near the base section, to stop the feeder sliding around.
When it's time to refill this feeder I remove the clamp and take down the platform, unhook the bungee and refill the reservoir. Then I easily put it all back up again and tighten the clamp. It has stayed put during some pretty bad rain storms and wind.
