Make a birdseed feeder with only a few ingredients! Hang them in a tree and take notes on the types of birds who come along to snack on them! This post contains an affiliate link.
I never understood how entertaining birds could be until I visited my in laws in Alaska when we were first married. They had a birdseed feeder right outside their living room window and I’d find myself staring out that window like it was a television set! The squirrels who came to steal the birdseed were equally as entertaining. We’ve been back several times and all enjoy watching the birds. We made some birdseed feeders recently and they turned out great! Side note: we also have this bird feeder in our kitchen window and LOVE it.
I’ve seen these made using peanut butter, karo syrup or unflavored gelatin. We chose unflavored gelatin because ants are always an issue in this area.
