[RE: People lined up outside Langley bird feed store, Jan. 2, langleyadvancetimes.com]
Hello, I read your article about sold-out heaters. Well, here is my homemade solution to freezing feeders.
I bought a outdoor lamp holder like used for Christmas display, made a bracket to hold soup can to house a 60 watt incandcent bulb for heat (not LED or CFL).
Worked fine even on those coldest day.
Our bird is still coming around and warming up on the feeders perch.
