Happy weekend, all!
This morning's project was to make bird feeders from disposable containers, and then place them at several locations at both our land garden and our terrace garden.
I save the plastic disposable containers, which I've been using as seed trays or spare feeders for my kittens or for anything else that catches my fancy.
A wonderful thought struck me - why not use these containers as bird feeders? I made two holes on the side of the containers, ran a wire across the holes, and then tied the container to trees and bars (on windows). Long time ago, I had bought a pack of bird feed (grains), from a pet shop. I filled the containers with the grains. Oh, if we have rains, all I need to do is cover the containers with their lids. Ta da... The grains will stay dry. :-)
Now I got to wait and watch if the birds are able to find the feeders. Otherwise, I need to tie the containers at different places. Keeping fingers crossed that this experient works fine!
Yes, of course, you too can make this simple bird feeder.
