Picture of Make a very simple bird feeder.
This is so simple to do, All you need is a small log and some very basic tools.
I usually make a dozen of these each year for the local infants school, Just mix suet or lard and some bird seed in a bowl, then
stuff the mixture into the holes, hang it on a branch or something... happy birdies!
