First of all I just want to give a big thanks to Josh and his crew for putting this site together. This is such a fun and exciting project! Who is the person in the build videos anyway? I love his accent, especially the way he says "peel." :)
Secondly, some warnings: the widths of some of the pieces I ordered from ponoko were off a bit. I had to file down the acrylic door a lot on both sides so that it would slide in and out. Also I highly recommend getting that needle tip for the acrylic glue b/c otherwise it is a mess with glue flowing out like crazy. (Very jealous of how neat and clean the builder in the videos did everything.)
Anyway I seeded my area with a really obnoxiously colored chip plate with peanuts and cheetos but the crows were unfazed with it. When I switched out to the crowbox, they were way slower to get near it. But once they did it took like 5 minutes for them to get comfortable. I am going to have to get it higher up to encourage the crows to stand on top to get the peanuts.
Enjoy! Will let yall know when I have updates!
