I made one of these log bird feeders many years ago. I wanted it to look like a lantern, but it is not lighted, so it is just a bird feeder. Maybe next time the roof will have solar panels for lights?
This Mason Jar Contest jogged my memory, so I decided to make another one and write my first instructable. Better late than never. One day left......
The first bird feeder I made lasted for about 10 years before the wood weathered and just fell apart. I love the rustic look of it, super cheap to make, easy to fill. The more weathered it gets, the more the birds love it.
This bird feeder is meant for tiny birds, like Chickadees and Finches. You can fill it with regular bird seed (the small yellow seeds) or sunflower seeds. This will not work for thistle seed.
If you don't have a round log to build with, you can improvise with any old scrap wood. See the last step of this instructable for alternative wood suggestions.
Thank you, Instructables, for having such a cool program!
