Making Homemade Bird Feeders

We make most of our bird feeders ourselves or I should say, my husband does. He is very talented. There are so many things you can use to make bird feeders with from scrap lumber to water pipes and everything in between. I personally think homemade feeders are more durable as well as very attractive. Do you feed the birds? Do you make your own feeders or do you purchase them?

I purchase them. My husband is a very handy man and I have no doubt he could make a bird feeder very easily. But as he builds for a living, I wouldn't want to put him out and make him build a feeder, so I just purchase them instead.

I have seen bird feeders made from liquid soap jugs, large milk jugs, coffee cans and of course wooden ones. I bought two bird feeders this year because I'm not at all talented and I wouldn't know what to do. I'd love to have some home made ones I think they are very unique. The ones I bought are just cheap plastic ones.

Villa what do you feed your birds with, I used to feed the birds in the park my left over bread but I have been told this is not good for the birds...I would hate to do damage to the birds...
