One of my first projects was to make a custom bird feeding station. I know that many people don't like waking up early to the song of sparrows and other small birds. However, it reminds me of my favourite childhood fairy-tale – Cinderella. Remember that old Disney animation?
So, I wanted to invite the little fellows to my backyard. After I did some research about how water features attract them and decided that on a later point I will try to insert one into my garden landscape, I chose to begin with something simpler. The previous home-owners has left some items in the backyard. These matching metal garden trellises were amongst them. Naturally, you can use wooden ones or even old ladders. It sure would make a fun way of re-purposing old ladders, if you ask me. Not only does such a lovely DIY bird feeding station makes a great statement in the backyard but the birds actually love it. You will find great satisfaction in the sight of the playful creatures early in the morning. Personally, I love to drink my coffee on the porch and observe them.
