I build these large fly-through bird feeders about 10 years ago. The first one I designed after I had patched up an old Amish-built one for a coworker. That bird feeder was quite large and had a copper roof on it. I really liked how practical it was – you simply toss bird seed inside and the birds just fly in and out of it as they stop for a snack. I even added a plexiglass bottom on some of the later ones so the bottoms would last longer. They are 24” across and around 24” tall. The gold and black one was for my parents (they live near Pittsburgh). I was surprised how many years these have lasted outdoors… unfortunately the squirrels like them too…
