Repurposed Handy Dandy Bird Seed Scooper Duper


Good news: I am no longer a klutz when filling the bird feeders.This is a simple idea but it sure took me a long time to think of it!
1. Cut the bottom off a large plastic pop/soda bottle. Keep the lid on.
2. Use it as a scoop to gather bird seed from the bag.
3. When you remove the cap, it's like a funnel, easily filling a narrow tube feeder like the one you see here.
And that's why it's now called the Handy Dandy Bird Seed Scooper Duper.

PS: Do you say 'pop' or 'soda'?
Cut the bottom off a pop/soda bottle. I used a serrated knife to start a hole and scissors to finish it off.

Scoop up seed and take it to the feeder. Remove the cap and the bottle pours it neatly like a funnel.

Use it over and over again. And be sure to tell everyone it's your Handy Dandy Bird Seed Scooper Duper. Or just a pop bottle. ;)

    I just had a "duh" moment. Lol Never thought of that and as many sodas as my family goes through, I've got plenty to work with, thanks for sharing!
