Most people would agree that to have a great variety of birds in your backyard it behooves you to have a wide variety of feeders and feed to attract avian diversity. Feeders range from tubes filled with seed, cages filled with suet, bottles filled with sugar water, and even just a shallow box placed on a pedestal filled with bread crumbs. There are countless different ways to feed birds in your backyard and I just knew the world wouldn't be able to properly function if I didn't throw out my own idea. :-) This project is easy to build, won't take up very much time, and if you're like a lot of Instructables Users you already have everything you need to complete it!
Step 1: What You WIll Need
The tools needed for this are very easy to come by and like I already have said, you probably have everything you need.
One Landscape Timber about 18-24 inches long (46-61 centimeters for my Rest-Of-The-Planet friends).
3 different sizes of spade bits (also known as a paddle bit) I used a 1/2 inch (1.3cm), 5/8 inch (1.6cm), and a 3/4 inch (1.9cm).
Some means of hanging the finished product from a tree or shepherd's hook. Somehow or another I couldn't find any zip ties (I know, I know!) so I used a length of chain I had lying around.
Suet to put into your finished feeder.
Step 2: Drill Hole. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat...
This part is very simple. Bore a hole into the wood at whatever depth you'd like (be careful not to go all the way through here). After you've made several holes with your starting bit, switch to a second size and repeat the process. Once bit number two has been utilized, go to bit number three. Once you're done with that, turn it over and start the process all over again. Very easy, nigh on impossible to screw up.
