Our Bird Feeding Station

We came up with a scathingly brilliant idea!  We made a bird feeding station!

Our bird feeding station has three sections on top.  One section has jar lids screwed down on it to hold jelly for birds like orioles, mockingbirds and others with a sweet tooth.  The second section is just an open space that has whole grain crackers in it right now but we can put crushed egg shells, bird seed, or any other number of things in that space. The third area on top has nails sticking up to skewer fresh fruit on.

We put cup hooks underneath at the four corners to hang various things.  Right now, we have a hummingbird feeder hanging from one corner and a finch block from another.  In the winter, we can hang suet feeders and pine cones with peanut butter and birdseed from the hooks.   We also nailed a large nail onto the post to hang bagels on with another nail underneath that’s for  birds to perch on to eat.  Sam bought some millet sprigs that we will eventually replace the bagel with.

We are anxiously waiting for the birds to come and discover their brand new diner!
