If you feed them, they will come. How to build a bird feeder from the recycling bin.
These are the tools and materials you may need. Smart water bottle and half a coconut shell. In the center is a picture hanging kit from the dollar store (for the wire and clip).
Cut and shape the bottom of the bottle, drill some holes, stick the hanger-sticks through.
Crimp one end of the wire with the clip then feed it through the bottom (drill holes at the bottom of the coconut for water drainage).
Add the bird food, a fancy top (this one made with cedar scraps and a miter saw), and done! Ready for hanging.
Birds love round coconuts. And food
And a nice sunset (hdr practice)
Total investment: $0 + 1 hr
They take some time getting use to, but after a while, who can resist all that delicious free grub?
Free natural fertilizer- hang one near the lawn or garden. Wake up to nice sounds and bright colors. You can even give them names if you must. Like having pet birds but without a cage. And they come and go as they please.
