Thanks to those who expressed an interest in a feeder set up such as 
this.  It is really quite simple--just assemble the feeder as if you 
were going to put it in the ground, but use a HEAVY umbrella base to 
hold the post.  Because most feeder poles are designed to be slender you 
will need some additional support inside of the umbrella tube.  With 
mine, I simply added the ground sleeve that was meant to pound into the 
ground.  The umbrella base crew is able to set on to that and keep 
things stable.

I am going to go out on a limb and say the feeder pole and accessories 
are Stokes brand, found at many retailers selling bird supplies.  I 
bought mine at a local pet supply, but I have seen some available at 
Menards, Mills Fleet Farm, etc.  They are modular, so have several 
options for topping the pole and/or adding extension hooks.  Cindy in
