No Expensive Feeders Again, Use This Simple Method To Make Feeders For Your Birds at Low Costs

You need not to spend much resources in purchasing feeders anymore. Use the following procedure to make your own feeders.

Step 1: Some of the Tools You Need.

What you need include the following:

1. One clean plastic soda bottle

1. One clean plastic 5-litre container

3. Some wire

You can do everything with a very pointy and sharp knife, but I will suggest that you use the following:

1. Your sharp knife

2. A hacksaw

3. A wire cutter

4. A drill for metal

Step 2: That's What We Are Going to Make :

Using a sharp knife cut away the front of the container, make sure to leave a few centimetres so that it keeps its strenght as you can see on the picture.

We have to cut the bottom of the little bottle and position it under the cap of the container, so we can use this to fill it with bird seeds.

Step 3: The Little Bottle

In this stage, you can use your knife, but it is better to use a hacksaw. To make the bottle keep its strenght it is best to only saw one centimetre from the bottom. First saw halfway and then turn the bottle bit by bit.

Step 4: How Do We Position the Little Bottle Into the Big One ?

Decide first on what type of seeds you want to put in this bottle. Bigger seeds like peanuts and sunflowers need an opening of 2 cm to come out of the bottle, but tiny seeds need less then 1 cm.

Hold the little bottle at the desired height inside the big one and hold it to the light of a window or lamp, then it is very easy to see where you have to make the two little holes to fix it with a wire. Be sure that you position the little bottle under the cap of the big one so you can open this to fill it up.

Step 5: Making the Holes

It would be better if you put something under this before drilling. And you can make some little holes in the bottom too.

Step 6: Fix the Little Bottle Inside the Big One

Using a wire cutter, cut a piece of the wire. Put the wire round the narrow part of the bottle and put it through the holes. Turn round and FIXED.

Step 7: Filling

You only have to fill it up (using the neck of another bottle) then put it where you want, fix it with some wire if needed.

Step 8: Action
