The purpose of this forum is to help people identify things they've seen while out hiking: wildflowers, trees, birds, insects, small animals, animal tracks, even geographical features like buttes or streams

Any idea what this thick dinner-plate sized piece of metal is(was) for? The tree has completely grown around the metal chain it hangs from. Found on the coast on the edge of a sand dune in Siuslaw National Forest.
pcg just about nailed it left-to-right, but it's clearly well below center of frame.
Anyway, I've never seen anything remotely similar. It's in decent condition considering it's clearly been there a very long time. I wonder how long a meticulously prepped and painted steel item could survive in the wild (no galvanizing, just paint).
