Build a bottle bird feeder

Build a bottle bird feeder Welcome birds into your garden by following these few quick and easy steps to building your very own bird feeder. What you need: - Plastic bottle (approx. 500ml) - 2 pencils - Knife or scissors - Wire or string - Bird feed - try and go for a mix of flaked maize and sunflower seeds. - A grown-up to help you 1 Holes for the perch Make 2 holes in the bottle, opposite each other, roughly 4 cm from the bottom of the bottle. You'll want the pencils to fit nice and securely in their place - the birds will thank you for it. Pierce 2 more holes in the bottle, slightly below the other holes and again opposite each other for the second pencil. 2 Fitting the perch Feed the two pencils through their holes at 90 degree angles. 3 Feeding holes Pierce small holes above the perches so the birds can reach the seeds. The holes should be slightly larger than the size of the seeds. 4 Fitting wire or string for hanging Pierce two holes at the top of the bottle, beneath the lid, Thread the wire or string through the holes. 5 Inserting bird food Remove the lid of the bottle and insert the bird feed. 6 Hanging the bird feeder Tie the wire or string around a tree branch or a washing line. Keep the bird feeder as high off the ground as possible so the birds can feed safely.
