Once day i was watching a bird to find food and water for her newly born baby birds. The Nest was on my tree in garden. The bird can hardly find food nearby him and use to fly as long as he can and return to babies in a long time .

Then i thought to help and try to built something for al birds which can help them in having food and water anytime.:D

Making a bird feeder by recycling old milk jug is a fast, easy project and a great way to recycle for the birds. These simple feeders are also perfectly functional and can be install around backyard or garden. Feed more birds without purchasing expensive feeder and also it can teach them about nature, crafting, and recycling.

Step 2: Basic Start

Using a pen or pencil, trace a line onto the side of your plastic container. You want to leave enough space at the bottom for your feeder to hold a few inches of bird food. You can choose to have a hole on just one side.Cut out the line using a craft knife or scissors. I found it easiest to start the cutting with the craft knife. And also we are again recycling the cap of a container as a water feed to birds this will great for them in best way this summer.

Note: Please be careful while using sharp tool to cut the container

Step 3: Fill With Food Grains

Fill your container with bird seed , and using the handle of the jug as a “hanger”, place your feeder in a tree.

Step 4: See What You Have Make!

Finally we are done with our bird feeder . All this will take around 10 minutes maximum to built similar to this one.
