    Hi Sadie!
    Thanks...I know I'm gonna enjoy it.

    Yes, the green thing on top of the green pole is a bird feeder. The pole used to be the base of an old satellite dish that my husband put up years ago...one of the old large ones. After the dish came down...and a more current model replaced it [on our house], the pole was left sticking up there in the back yard, for no obvious reason (it was waaaay deep in the ground, so it couldn't be removed). It looked bad, so I kept flowers planted all around it...as camoflauge. I finally got the bright idea to paint it and put a bird feeder on top (on a wood base I rigged up). Last summer I repainted it "John Deere Greene" and "updated" my bird feeder. I have the feeder nailed down because the wind kept blowing it off. Anyway, that's the story of the "pole and bird feeder" lol Lots of words just to answer your question "yes".

    I have fans in mine and I also found a Hydrofogger --it is awesome at both cooling things down and increasing humidity.

    Wow! That's very creative of you to get the bright idea of turning a non-functioning, non-decorative pole into a beautiful bird feeder to enhance your landscape!
