DIY Bird Feeder

So easy to put together cat and rat proof



DIY Bird Feeder





Materials required
Scaffolding pole or plastic pipe, long enough to keep the birds out of the reach of cats. Fix securely to wall or stake.
Plastic lid from used paint or feed container..bigger the better, make hole in center and push down over pole.
Some twigs, I used green ones, inserted into the top of the pole.
Then suspend fat balls, peanuts and sunflower seeds, in containers from' branches' and fill the tray with mixed seeds and niger seeds.
It is amazing how many birds visit every day and I have had gold finches, green finches and long tailed tits, robins, all other varieties of tits and a blackbird!

So much pleasure ..I just have to supply the food!
