Let's create a rustic upcycled bird (or butterfly) feeder out of an old rake head.

You can find old rake heads in goodwill stores or yard sales...

After giving the rake a wash in water, use two large staple nails to attach to the top of the fence. The rake was a perfect fit between the pickets.

Add your fruit. I used tangelos as we have an enormous tree of this fruit.

Then sit with your cup of tea and watch... as the feathered friends enjoy.
These wee wax eye birds were ever so grateful to see this new feeding station , as it is mid winter here, and food is becoming scarce for them.

    It's also a great rat attracter, sorry to say, it is sooo cute. Now removed.

    I did something similar when I lived in NY and got Baltimore Orioles! And as far as it attracting other guests, even a regular seed feeder does that- I've had squirrels chippers, possums, raccoons and I dont mind. If I've had rats, I've never seen

      LOL - on a good day 8 to 15 degrees, and on a bad one 0! I live coastal so no snow here in the beautiful Bay Of Plenty of New Zealand.
