Gourmet Bird Feeder
Here's a large, unique designed feeder that's a pleasure to look at -- PLUS -- it gives visiting lucky birds their choice of four seeds!
If you're a lover of nature, you'd probably agree that the more species of birds you can get to visit a bird feeder in your yard, the happier you'll be. If that's the case, here's a uniquely designed feeder that you can load with up to four different types of seeds to bring a variety of birds within easy sight. Just match the birds you choose to attract with the seeds they prefer to eat. We've even provided a brief table of seed types at the end of this article to help you make the right choices.
How to build it
Because it's so attractive and should last outdoors indefinitely without any type of finish, we built our Gourmet feeder out of redwood. However, any durable, weatherproof wood such as Western red cedar or cypress would also be fine...though we would not recommend the use of pressure-treated lumber, due to its toxicity. The main body of our feeder is made from 3/4" stock, while the windows (J) compartment dividers (K) and edging (M) are cut from 1/4" plexiglass or similar see-through plastic material.
