How to make an apple bird feeder

Stuff you’ll need:

  • An apple
  • Some suitable seeds and grains (for example: nyjer, millet, oats, and sunflower seeds work well)
  • Some string

Info

It can be tough for birds to find food. With this quick and easy activity you can create bird feeders to hang on your patch and help birds stay happy and healthy.

Remember to position your feeders in a relatively open area away from predators (feeders near shrubs make it easy for cats to pounce) – the birds will feel safer and visit more!

Water is as important as food to most garden birds, and not just for drinking but bathing as well. So if you can put out a bird bath along with your feeders, and always ensure the water is kept clean.
