These are absolutely delightful!  And fun too.  A Frisbee of all things.  Our birding/wild life mania has led us on continuous expeditions to find bird feeders that are not only unique but functional.  Retail store and online searches normally produce the typical results.  But THESE are terrific.  We will suggest that our visitors stop be here to see for themselves.  Thank you for these terrific finds.

Thank you very much for your kind words. I must caution you though, this design is not squirrel proof. I found this out about 2 weeks after hanging it up when I looked out my window and saw a squirrel inside the feeder enjoying himself immensely. To gain access he had enlarged one of the holes to three times the size I had made them, thus destroying this fun project. For a good squirrel proof design check out this ible http://www.instructables.com/id/Squirrel-Proof-Bird-Feeder/. It is simple and effective.

Hey ! this is excellent for a first-time instructable : congratulation ;- )

Thanks, it was a lot of fun doing the bird feeder and the instructable.
That is very well done! It looks just like something you'd buy in a store. :D In fact, if my bird feeder had a colored top and some flowers, it'd be the same thing.

Thanks, this is my first instructable.
And what a brilliantly simple, well thought out and wonderfully presented instructable it is.  I'll be making some of these with my friends children, something more prodtuctive to do with tem than  just playing computer games.

Top marks!

HI! What size do you recommend the pvc pipe should be? I want to make this for my balcony and a little help will be appreciated!
uneektalent (author)  giannacl5 years ago
Hi giannacl,
I used 1 1/4 PVC which is a good size for the smaller birds. Unfortunately the squirrels wanted bigger holes for easier access and destroyed the jar in just a few days. So if you have squirrels I recommend posting a ‘NO SQUIRRELS’ sign or glue a small ‘rope’ of stainless (so it won’t rust) steel wool around the edge of each opening so they cannot chew the plastic to shreds.
Good luck and have fun.
no squirrels in the Dominican Republic to worry about so i guess it will be fine! of all feeders, yours look the better and soon I'll find out if  it works... I'll let you know!

Nice and inexpensive. I used an aluminum pie pan instead of a Frisbee.

This is great. I was literally looking at Lowe's for bird feeder but didn't want to pay $15 for one. You have helped a Bunch! Great Job!

Neat Idea! what else can you use instead of a Frisbee though?
uneektalent (author)  Short One6 years ago
I hadn't given that any thought because the frisbee was available. If you don't have one try your local dollar store. It just needs to be something that can shed the rain. Maybe even an old plate or hubcap.
Like the idea. Me and my cousin are trying to catch a bird (lol) and if we do, we'll make this in the ~~death defying~~ cage it will stay in. +5/5 stars

This looks pretty good, At least it is appealing to birds, with the color on the bottle. Good job. PP
