How to Make a Natural Bird Feeder

How to Make a Natural Bird Feeder

 

Birds are fantastic creatures.  Not only do they serenade us with their sweet song and are lovely to watch but they also help keep our garden eco-system friendly. Birds remove a whole host of creatures and insects from the garden and help keep the vital balance in nature.  

Feeding them is the number one way to increase their numbers in your garden.  Here’s how to do it:

#1 – The best natural bird feeder is simply being as natural as possible in our food choices.  Using natural twine, string up peanuts (in their shells) and hang from trees.  You can also string up apples, rosehips, berries seed head and kitchen scraps.

Decorate your creations by tying fir cones to the bottom.  For example you can attach a fir cone to the bottom of the string and place a few apples or fat balls on top.  The fir cones will help the birds balance.

You can tie these edible bird feeders from old tree branches all around the garden – the more the merrier.

#2 – Construct your own feeder – This is far easier than it sounds.  As long as the birds are fed you really don’t need anything fancy.  An old piece of wood and something to attach it to will do – you can use the top of an old shed or a sturdy tree branch.  Simply nail your platform in place and add nuts or seeds to attract the birds.  

You can also use old twigs shaped and tied together to form a nest shape which you can then attach to the trees.  

A pre-made bird house can be given a special touch with a little non-toxic paint and a few edible decorations such as hanging berries and peanuts.

# 3 – Don’t forget the water – Birds need hydration just like humans.  If you don’t have an actual bird batch then simply add a few old pots of water throughout the garden.  The birds will find their way to them and use the water to drink as well as cool down.  

Making a natural bird feeder isn’t difficult.  Simply use your imagination and remember the task at hand – keeping the birds fed and happy – it really doesn’t require a whole lot but you will get a lot of pleasure from enjoying these lovely creatures all year in the garden.
