I was looking for something for a bird feeder. Driving along a canyon road,
and found a Lexus hubcap. Really interesting looking, and in good shape.
Now, if I could find another in good shape, which is doubtful, I could make
a flying saucer looking one by having a top and bottom house.
I just wonder what kind of bird clientele I would have there, though. Some
of the rarer high class birds, or some of the commoners taking advantage of
And then, only some species of birds will reside in a house in close
proximity to another nest.
No matter. I'll just use the one for a bird feeder, but put it so high up
that the Lexus emblem will be visible for the nouve riche upscale ambience
to attract birds on a tight lunch schedule.
If you like hubcaps, there are businesses that collect them and sell them.
People who pick them up from the side of the road go to these places and
sell them. I have seen such businesses in several cities.
You might want to check it out. Or just call a junkyard. But they probably
want top dollar for them.
A friend brought me some of the bright orange reflective plywood highway
signs to cut up for a project he was doing. I took the scrap and made 3 bird
housed to put at the end of the drive way as markers (real funky looking).
Birds moved in right away to these and have not moved in to two of my nice
cedar houses just a few feet away. So I would have to say bright orange
reflective plastic is high on the list of bird house coverings.
