Winter, cold, and affectionate summer is remembered more often. Looking for the window on the frozen birds, you feel the desire to help them. How? Make a feeder!

Plastic in hands

A bird feeder from a plastic bottle can be made in different ways. We propose to consider several methods.

  • The simplest looks like this: you need, in addition to the very capacity, wooden spoons with long handles. In the bottle at different levels, make holes and insert spoons. What is the principle of such a bird feeder? From a plastic bottle, the grain should fall into a spoon. Therefore, on one side of the hole make a little wider. And to a cup of spoon, nail a small plank, on which birds can sit. Jumping on it, they shake the bottle, and the food will be poured out where it should be. Through the funnel, you should fill the grain in the container and turn the cap. The last question is how such a bird feeder from a plastic bottle will be attached. With this and is quite simple. Tie a rope to the neck and hang the bottle to a comfortable branch. And that in the wind it does not swing and does not frighten the birds, it should be tied to the trunk and fixed in one position. Such a bird feeder from a plastic bottle will cost you inexpensively. Therefore, they can be done in unlimited quantities and it is healthy to support our feathered friends.
  • The second option is how to make a bird feeder made of plastic. On both sides it is necessary to cut out wide "windows" in height two quarters from the bottle. The walls must turn into "columns" supporting the roof - the top with a neck (close it with a lid). From the bottom, retreat roughly to the palm-and-a-half, so that the poured grain does not fall to the ground. And attach to the tree. True, you can eat here only as a loner or as a couple. Therefore, you need to make such points of "bird catering" as much as possible. Well, replenish the reserves will have much more often than in the version proposed above. What else can you improve this device, so it's a small hole, which should be done in the bottom of the bottles. Thanks to them, all the moisture that will fall on the grain safely flows down. And the bird's food will not be covered by the crust of ice, and it will be easy for the birds to get to it.
  • Someone, having conceived the idea of creating a winter dining room for sparrows and little bunnies, will begin to search the internet for a bird feeder drawing. For those who take plastic bottles for this purpose, such a serious preparation is of no use. Because the third option is also very unpretentious. Cut the bottle along into 2 pieces. Near the neck cut your shoulders. Pick up a board with a length of 2 bottles. Nail the resulting troughs to it, combining them into one. You can build a low roof or a visor. Then bird food will not be soaked in the rain and will not be covered with snow. A plank will give the trough stability, and the birds so sit down and peck much more comfortable than on the tiny bottles of the bottle!

As you can see, all ingenious is simple. And if you really want to help the birds, then you can easily make a lot of feeders, thanks to which you will save from a hungry death, not a single voiced friend. Just remember the lines from the childhood poem "Feed the birds in winter" and you will understand how important it is!
