I feel certain that many of you might just be bird-lovers, birdwatchers, perhaps even photographers of specialized bird species.Well, personally I enjoy watching a variety of birds that soar, nest and tweet in our backyard. From the majestic beauty of the red tail hawk as he sits on the branch of an oak tree or the brilliant crimson red of the cardinal flying from limb to limb. So when we were given the challenge of what to do with a Tea Cup I knew immediately that I wanted to use my tea cup to enhance the quality of life for my bird friends.

So, today six of us tea cup friends and our lovely organizer Links to all will be included at the end of this post.

Once this idea popped into my head, I was so anxious to get it made and get it hung on a Tree branch.I almost felt like the birds were just waiting for me to hurry up and get it made.The great thing about this project is it is FAST and easy too, so your bird friends won't have to wait long either.icon
It has been recommended by several readers that epoxy glue or E6000 glue be used for this project rather than crazy glue to insure the project stays secure.
