Home made bird feeder

I tried to make a bird feeder out of a plastic milk carton rather than just throwing it away. I usually have my milk delivered in glass bottles but occasionally when I run out I resort to getting a plastic carton.

I cut three holes in the side, and because seed would just fall out if it was vertical, I turned it horizontal. Also I made the holes big enough so a bird would not get its head stuck, made a little platform by bending the bottom edge down, and cut off any sharp edges.

Partly filled with Niger seed. Hopefully this will work, the handle was pushed over a vertical branch. Will check and make sure birds are OK…..

Last day of this challenge.

Ariel birds! These were visiting our bird feeder today. I only got a glimpse so I added the flying one from a photo. Can’t tell you what these are they are all I could draw, but the one on the feeder was a bluetit. But I couldn’t get the details quick enough….. This is the last of this challenge. This was day 38. The last of the current challenge. We may be moving on to a list of prompts every other day to keep going….

I have to say this has made me look at things differently and made me realise I can draw a lot of things, although my straight lines are a bit wobbly!
