HOW TO MAKE A QUICK EASY SIMPLE AND ECONOMICAL DIY BIRD FEEDER

I love seeing birds in our backyard. It simply adds to the amusement in life. Looking at them luring around makes life more bright and lively. But not all the time they are visiting us. I once noticed that they landed in our backyard as a flock when the hails came and all the worms in our backyard came out and next thing we know they were peeking them as a food. It was the first time I saw it for the last 6 yrs since  we move in the house and I was so surprised when I saw that and I find it amazing. 

I just remember a colleague once said that its better to help the birds finding their food during the winter season as it is difficult and cold around this time instead of doing it around the summer. I thought about it and it is true. During summer season birds are more free to fly and foods are more easy to find as they are not covered with snow. Although this project could be more useful  during winter season, doing it during summer could do no harm except making birds lazy to find foods by themselves (kidding around). Besides if you like nature and you want the nature to come to you this could be a smart thing to do.

Here are the things that we needed:

    * Bird seeds

    * Peanut butter

    * String

    * Toilet roll card board

    * Plate

    * Spoon

    * Bread knife


INTRUCTIONS:

1. Prepare the things needed, pour the bird seeds on the plate depending how make you gonna make. Just estimate and ensure it is just enough to finish the project.  Set aside. 
2. Scope the peanut butter using the spoon and spread it through around the toilet roll card board. Spread evenly and with fair amount in order for the seeds to stick well.

3. Get the plate with bird seeds. Press firmly and gently the toilet roll card board with peanut butter against the seeds. 

4. Once all the sides are covered with the seeds, cut the string to the length that you preferred and put it thru the hole of the roll and knot both end. See image below. 

5. Then you can find the perfect place to hang your project. Then let these birds enjoy your treat for them. 

Where do I put a bird feeder?

If possible, you should place bird feeders in a number of locations and at a variety of heights throughout your garden. Some birds prefer to feed higher up, where they have a better vantage point, while others like to forage directly from the ground. Your options are obviously more limited if you’re setting up feeders on your patio.

More Tips:

Birds need cover, especially smaller birds, so if your feeders are close to bushes and hedgerows then you’ll tempt more of them to stop by in your garden for a snack. A birdbath filled with fresh drinking water is another great way to encourage birds to visit your garden on a regular basis.

One more note: if you have a pet cat roaming the garden, birds are less likely to feed there. Safety is paramount for birds – when there’s a dangerous predator on the loose, they will find food elsewhere.*

Tips what seeds to choose:

  • Start by choosing the bird seed that appeals to the birds that already visit your yard. The increased activity will pique the curiosity of other species of birds, and you will be able to expand the varieties of seed later. After all, you cannot attract birds that are not in your area, no matter what types of bird seed you offer. 
  • Consider whether you want to deter certain backyard visitors. Squirrels, raccoons, chipmunks and aggressive birds such as jays can dominate bird feeders and keep away the birds you want to see. Avoid bird seed that will attract these undesirables, and choose bird seed that does not interest them instead.  
  • Choose the right type of bird seed for your bird feeders. Not all bird feeders can accommodate certain types of seeds, so if you already have bird feeders, you must find compatible bird seed. Keep in mind that some bird feeders suit certain types of birds more than others, so you may want to change your bird feeders or add more varieties in the future. 
  • Find high quality bird seed. Always look at the bird seed ingredients before purchasing. Lower quality bird seed mixes will have high proportions of fillers like milo and corn that are less desirable to many birds. You can also determine quality by the freshness of the seeds and the sturdiness of the packaging. Bird seed should be as fresh as possible and well-protected from water, debris and pests. **
