Build Your Own Bird Feeder!
Spring is on its way and all our backyard birds are hungry. With daffodils blooming and crocuses beginning to pop their heads out of the soil, we tend to forget that food sources of seeds from autumn plants have long been blown away by winter winds and new growth hasn’t yet begun.
There’s about 2 acres of wooded land adjacent to my property for the birds, raccoons, possums and the occasional coyote. This area has been left in its natural state, free from lawn mowers, chain saws and weed eaters. It’s pretty much as God designed it.
We only have three bird feeders in the woods and two next to the house, but that is enough to keep us on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to keep wild bird food in our five homemade bird feeders full is not an easy job. It seems as if it is the goal of every bird to do its part to empty the entire feeding
