Bird Buffet ~ A Repurposed Bird Feeding Station

Skewering bread, suet cakes and fruit onto an old rake head gave it new purpose as a bird feeding station. There was even a spot to hang my new peanut feeder !
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy

    As for the pitchfork...why not tie it to a small tree. The tines curve out so you could skewer items to it and yet the birds could light on the tree and sit there and eat! Sort of like an old fashioned drive-in ... but this could be called the "fly-in"!

    I have more squirrels than birds and they are fun to watch too, Staking it to a tree would draw them right to it. hummm I could make it a squirrel feeder and place it in the corner so the squirrels would leave my garden alone. Thanks @Jeanette S.

    Super idea. At my house it would be a squirrel feeder, with a few crumbs left over for the birds. :)

    Love this idea, last year (my first year to live where is actually snows) I took an old metal wire hanging flower basket and filled it with some old misc. nut mixture left over from Christmas and hung it in the tree out back.. We had a wonderful time

    Barb Rosen you are so wonderful to take care of the birds and animals and other critters. I find it so relaxing and enjoyable to watch nature at work and do everything I can to help HER (Mother Nature). Don't you wish everyone did?

    Thank you Bernice H, I try my best. I can do a lot because my neighbors and I have very large lots for a HOA and we all love the creatures that visit.
