|BBQ bottle bird feeder - mounted|
I scrubbed it our and cut it as shown below with an Exacto knife and a pair of scissors. It makes an L-shaped feeder when turned on its side. The remaining side of the bottle makes a shallow bowl/perch at the bottom.
To mount it, I drilled a hole in the cap and screwed it to the deck post. Then, screwed the bottle on tight, twisting it around till the bottle was turned in the position shown. Then, all you have to do is pour a little seed in the tray part. I also put leftover greens, bread crumbs and such. The feeder is right outside the kitchen window, so I am constantly reminded to add goodies for the birds.
That's all there is to it. When the birds find it, I'll get some pictures of the feeder in use.

barbecue sauce first, of course.
