Looks good, do you lift the lid to access and refill the bottle. Bird feeders are quick fun and you get to clear out scraps from the bin.

If you look closely at the front there two screws that hold the front of the larger top hole the bottle goes through. Didn’t think of putting a hinge on until after I had it put together

Nice job. Have any ideas to control squirrels from getting to food?

Looks good but you will use less food if it is positioned upright.
To reduce the squirrel problem I use high speed lead injections. Hard to do in a residential area. So they need to be at least 8 feet from anythng the squirrel can climb and jump from and have a sheild on the post. Mounting on a round metal post works well. Use a pipe flange to attach the feeder to the top of the post.
