Plastic Bird Feeder
The idea is so simple that it does not require long explanations.
Step 1: What you need.
For this homemade need the following materials:
Plastic containers must be clean:) Everything can be done with one tool – a well-sharpened knife pointed at the end. But it is better to use:
Step 2: Here is what we will do:
With a knife, you need to cut the front of the canister. But not completely: leave a few centimeters at the edges to maintain structural strength.
Step 3: Small Bottle
We cut the bottom of a small plastic bottle and placed it under the canister lid. This will be a bird feed container.
As I said, you can only use a knife, but I cut the bottle with a hacksaw.
To keep the bottle as strong as possible, cut only 1 cm from the bottom. Cut half of the bottom, then turn the bottle a little and finish.
Step 4: How to put a small bottle in a large canister?
First you need to decide what type of food you want to feed the birds.
Larger grains like peanuts or sunflower seeds require a 2 cm gap between the bottom of the canister and the bottle to fall out of the bottle freely. And 1 cm is enough for small grains.
While holding the bottle inside the canister at the desired height, look at the entire structure in front of the light (near a window or lamp). So it will be very simple to determine in which place to make two holes for attaching the bottle to the wire.
The bottle must be placed under the lid of the canister in order to fill the bottle with grain.
Drill holes at high speeds or simply drill them with a hot wire. It’s better to drill over a surface covered with something.
Step 6: Fasten the bottle inside the canister
Cut the desired piece of wire with wire cutters. Wrap the groove in the middle of the bottle and thread the ends into the holes in the canister. Fasten the wire so that the bottle holds firmly in place.
Step 7: Pour Feed
It remains to fill the bottle with food (you can use the neck of another bottle). Place the feeder where you want. If necessary, secure with wire.
Step 8: In Action!
After half an hour, the birds began to fly to the feeder.
