Milk Jug Birdfeeder
Cold is coming….well, not right now anyway. It’s 70 something. But naturally it was here last weekend for the twins birthday party (40 degrees) so we locked the kids in the basement to play. Well we didn’t really lock them in the basement although it was tempting. The quiet was nice.
But anyway, with the cold coming Makenna is concerned for the birds so we made them a birdfeeder.
Your standard recycled milk jug birdfeeder, but it looks cute hanging from the sour cherry tree and the birds seem to like it.
To make your own.
Clean milk jug. Cut holes in the two sides opposite the handle (see the big cirlces on the photo) for the birds to stick there little heads in. Then poke two holes to push a stick or dowel rod through for the birdies to sit on while they’re eating(see the two black dots). Poke a few holes in the bottom for drainage, but don’t make them too big or the birdseed will fall through. Leave the lid on and poke two holes at the top and string wire or rope through them to hang your feeder.
