I always have some kind of bird feeder in my yard at all times! I love watching birds feast on seeds while I do the dishes, work at my desk or even enjoying a cup of coffee at the kitchen table, it’s kind of my idea of relaxation. It can actually get pretty expensive to buy bird feeders and replace the seeds all the time, not to mention finding the perfect spot to hang it or installing hardware. I much prefer to make my own, which is easy and cheap.
Quick tip: when hanging your feeders, do not dangle them from random branches, it will be hard for the birds to get to them this way. Place them up against the trunk or thick branches, this way the birds will have a surface to hold onto while eating.
