Bird Feeders

 

 

It is so nice to see all the new greenery in our neighborhood. Nice to hear the sounds of birds chirping and other wildlife thriving on what Allah has given them,Alhamdulilah.

My husband actually suggested we make birdfeeders, so I went with it. I did a little research and we have done 4 birdfeeders!

The beauty of having many kids is we can always make one project many!

The first of our birdfeeders is a milk like container. We cut holes around it and put a wooden dowel through it. Painted it and it’s ready to be hung! Here is where we found this craft: Ziggity Zoom

The second one is made from the same milk carton, but cut differently. Here is where we found this craft: How Stuff Works

 

The third is made from a spice jar. Smaller scale, but still large enough for one single bird to come and enjoy a meal, insha Allah.

The fourth and last one was made from a 2 liter soda bottle cut in half.

We placed a dowel through the bottom half so we can place it in the yard standing up and a dowel as a perch.

We have seen more activity with this one so far,masha Allah.

Here is where we found this craft at: Crafts for Kids

    Have you ever heard of Project FeederWatch?
    http://www.birds.cornell.edu/pfw/Overview/over_index.html

    seems like a nice science project for kids

  3. As salaam alaikum,

    Do you find the squirrels eating more than the birds?

  4. Wa Alaykum As Salaam,
    Dear sis Umm Tafari, I don’t seem to have problems with squirels. Although I think it could be because I don’t really have squirrels in my neighborhood? *smile* I do know some people have had issues with squirrels raiding the bird feeders, solution for that is to put the bird feeder in a place the squirrel can’t climb or crawl to!

  5. As Salaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmahtuallahi, No sis Sakeenah, I didn’t know anything about the project feeder watch. I will definately have to save the link and enter next year or perhaps the fall insha Allah. Jazakallahu Khair for sharing the link *Hugs*
