Windsticks

I was doing a search for wind mills & wind sculptures the other day, as I have a hankering to create some kind of wind powered sound art ‘thing’ and I came across these great windsticks so I ordered a set & they just arrived… I installed them in the garden temporarily, just to see how they respond – the developers of them say they use them as bird feeders & there are some great photos & videos on their site of waxeyes & other birds landing on them etc.. The flexible 3m sticks have small stones embedded on them for placing food etc…

No doubt I will try them for feeding birds & will photograph the results, but the movement in the currently gentle breeze is quite mesmerizing…
