I enjoy birds. When I am sitting in the back yard during the summer, I enjoy looking up from my book to see birds tittering over the seed I have placed on the fence for them. I especially like the house finches and the gold finches because they are so colorful. Those little gold finches are the prettiest little guys around. Feeding them is a simple way to gain a little entertainment.
To that end, we have purchased bird feeders before. I think, however, the one I like best is the re-purposed coffee creamer container. I took it and an empty water bottle and modified them just a smidge. The empty water bottle is the hopper and the creamer container is the magic area where the food collects. All it took was a little wire and a knife. And the best thing is, the birds love it. I filled it on Sunday and it is now empty. I like it when a plan comes together.
