Bamboo canes bird perching station ... Not a question, but just want to share an idea with everyone. This is a structure of canes tied near-horizontally into a rose bush which has dropped its leaves. It is next to a variety of feeders and a small colony of house sparrows now seems to have adopted it permanently. Other birds also, tits, robins, dunnocks and finches use it. It has proved a massive hit with them, and demonstrates that birds in the garden not only need different foods provided for them, but importantly need somewhere to perch also. I've been amazed at how birds have responded to it, and now they literally teem outside my window to delight me.
