Our semi-homemade bird feeder!

Brian and I have done a bit of bird watching lately. Usually I’m chasing butterflies and other insects, while he sits in his chair with an adult beverage and enjoys watching. I decided we needed a bird feeder at the condo so we could see what kind of bird friends we get, and have loads of fun trying to figure what the heck they are! We headed up to Home Depot and grabbed a few odds and ends and this is what we got!

This rinky dinky bird feeder is so awesome! It’s perfect for our sorry excuse of a deck and plus we can’t drill holes. Everything we bought ended up costing us around 7 dollars! Heres how you can make your very own!

  • Hook (preferably with a screw-able end) – I bought one that’s rubberized so the chain wouldn’t slip -$0.97
  • Hollow Pole – I used one that came in the packaging for our flat screen. $0.00
  • EZ Fill Suet Basket – $2.79-$3.99
  • Wild Bird Suet Cake – $1.59

This was so easy to make! we drilled a hole for the hook, screwed it in, set the cake up, and took it outside with zip ties (no drill holes!) and we’ve had a few visitors! I can’t seem to get their photos on the feeders because I need to move it.
