Comments about Product: This feeder's first location was in our small backyard in the city. The birds seemed wary of the overhang and avoided it. The feeder is now being put to good use at our mountain home and quickly became the most popular of them all! The mountain chickadees hop right in and feast until the woodpeckers chase them away for their turn! The weight of these birds tips the feeder to the delight of the nuthatches on the ground below. Not only is this feeder functional, it's been great for entertainment and bird watching!
Comments about Product: The top and bottom domes on mine are misshapen and unevenly crafted giving it a warped appearance. One edge of the top dome is about 2 inches lower than the other edge. It says it's hand crafted, so that may be why.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
