Plastic Bottle Bird Feeder

Download our Plastic Bottle Bird Feeder instructions for  another activity that can be done without leaving home.  If you don’t have a garden or a yard, you may still be able to hang a bird feeder just outside a window where you can see it.  Pretty much everyone should be able to make one of these from stuff that you already have, or that can be bought from a supermarket.  Most supermarkets have bird feed too (check by the pet food).  You can improvise with any nuts but make sure they are salt free.  The plastic bottle feeder I made yesterday (in the photo) is proving to be super popular with our goldfinches, while our blue tits and coal tits seem to prefer the wire shop-bought feeder so far. What about yours? Tell us in the comments.
