Closing Shop After 5 Years and 1,311 Halos

Dear Customers,

After 5 years out in the shop, I have officially ended this journey in the design and manufacture of House Sparrow-resistant halo/lines systems for bird feeders. I was very happy to provide this service to the birding community, and to fill a necessary void given there are no formal halo manufactures. The fact that it is a deterrent and not "HOSP-proof" necessarily, yet I still had so many repeat customers over those 5 years, is a testament to its success IMO.

For a DIY video on how to make your own albeit in a X pattern, which appears effective also, check out this YouTube video by Jeff Hanson. Also, subscribe to his channel for future updates. Thank you so much!  --Francis
