Thistle Bird Feeder


I saw a bird feeder made from a soda bottle and I wanted to make one also. I already have a bird feeder for sunflower seeds. I wanted a thistle feeder to try to attract the American Goldfinch which is so pretty at this time of year-bright yellow!
I took a bottle and melted holes in it for a dowel to go through. Then I melted a tiny hole just above the dowel for the birds to get the seeds out of. Please
A small Coke bottle turned into a thistle feeder.

A long skinny bottle is perfect. See the holes?

See the dowel? It goes straight through the bottle.
