Repurposed / Upcycled Hillbilly Bird Feeders

on Jun 12, 2016
I created these and one other one recently for a Birds & Blooms magazine DIY feature.
It was to provide a solution for really inexpensive bird feeder construction at home.
I used everything from muffin pans, to remnant wood, to tray lids, and a few accessories.
I used jack chain for the suspension.
These were created for only $20 each.

    I think the birds in your yard are spoiled but so are mine. I tie the husk from the corn cob in a loop and hang it on the pointed top of the stockade fence. I don't have any mouse or rat problems even with an elementary school for a back neighbor.I

      @Irish53 Sounds like it's an adventure at your place with all that wildlife! Haha.

    I just love the Hillbilly bird feeder, I have been feeding my little feathered friends for almost a year now. I have really enjoyed watching them feast. I put out a variety of seeds just to watch them sample each feeder

      @Syld577 Thanks so much! It's amusing to see what species of bird favors what food.

    Please don't poison the rats...they can get eaten by predators, who are then also poisoned. To protect wildlife, and your neighborhood cat, please trap the rats. Thanks for your consideration.

    I might use beads on a string to hang it. Bright colors draw songbirds, just rinse and run thru dishwasher every week.
