This isn't nearly as classy as JohnBeardon's bird feeder, but as I have stated before, the Pacific Northwest has some rain. For that reason I made some additions to (I think it was GavinKennedy's) Bird feeder with Soda Bottle Thread at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:251085 . I added a small awning and a stringer to make sure the strings holding it don't twist.
I found that the first stringer was a little flimsy, so I added another with a little more beef.
