Tool for Hanging My Birdfeeders


I'm kind of disappointed in how few birds I'm seeing in my back yard these days. But I have hopes I'll see more when it gets a big colder and the leaves have fallen.

I made myself a rod with a hook on the top for putting the feeders up and down. It is mostly made from an old swiffer, and then I added a length to it from another small handled appliance I stole out of the neighbor's garbage can. The two rods were of different diameters, so they wouldn't just screw together. I jerryrigged them with some scrap pieces of wood and some epoxy putty. I'd still like it to be a bit longer, so if I ever see another swiffer at a garage sale, I'll grab it.
