Bird Seed Fountain

Seeds are sprayed into the air and drop back into feeder so birds will need to catch them while flying.
  [vote for,

Add an element of sport to your bird feeder. Birds will need to catch seeds as they're blown upwards with a fan and fall back into the unit.

The plume would be shaped such that the birds would have to be flying to catch the seeds as the nearest perch points would be a few inches away from the flying seeds column.

Be interesting to see how well birds learn to take on the challenge.

Kenwood_20Bean_20Fountain For the more daring of our feathered friends [xenzag, Dec 08 2022]

The beans fountain family Xen was referring to. https://www.youtube...sktop&v=mhdO_bYby1U
Off topic but important to review. [doctorremulac3, Dec 09 2022]


       Look! Squirrels!

       I was thinking about that. Gonna need some kind of squirrel abatement device since they'd just jump on the column and pack their cheeks by sticking their mouth over the launch spout.   

       Lil' bastards.

       I don't understand this hatred for our furry friends.
Voice, Dec 08 2022

       Don't get me wrong, I love the little SOBs but I dream of a day when fur and feathers can eat side by side without the lil' furballs hogging all the grub.

       So, In order for this to be truly half-baked, each seed needs to be attached to a tiny parachute so the birds can have a chance to get them as they are floating lightly down to the ground. I want to give some bread for this, I also give it to the birds.
xandram, Dec 08 2022

       Hey, that's a new idea! Shoot a bag of bread with a parachute?   

       Or a balloon, that could be cool.   

       A birdfeeder on a balloon anchored by a string so it doesn't float away, create a flock of birds in the sky to watch while chilling in the park!   

       Bun for your beanfountain Xen and the Python schetch which I assume is the "I RUN OUTTA BEANS!" one.
doctorremulac3, Dec 08 2022

       I like it!

       I love your idea, doc, but I gotta tell you, I opened the link and I'm still laughing at the insanity of a bean fountain, and where the hell was zags head when this bean idea popped into his head?
blissmiss, Dec 08 2022

       We all come here for the wackyness eh? Well, I do anyway.   

       I especially like old ideas popping up so I can bun them if I haven't already. Enthusiastically bunned that one.
