Seeds for birds in a grapefruitManual : Fully recyclable and biodegradable, this feeder was made with a grapefruit cut in half and cored. Two small holes drilled with the tips of the scissors made it possible to pass a string to suspend it from a tree branch. On both sides, small pieces of wood were planted as perches. Tip # 1: Hang your feeders close enough to the house to enjoy the sight of the birds coming to feed, but far enough away from cats and other predators!

A bird house in milk bricksManual : Anglo-Saxons love these bird shelters tinkered with from cardboard milk boxes. We borrow the idea from them by recycling our Tetra Paks into feeders for small birds. A blow of scissors to clear the opening, a stroke of paint for the decoration, a mini-perch planted on the front, a mixture of seeds, and voila! Tip # 3 : If you don't want to buy commercial bird seed mixes, offer them apples, wheat or barley, sunflower seeds, margarine, cooked rice, corn kernels or even raisins.

A seed cocktail for the winterManual : As in winter, birds have a great need for lipids, we cook them a nice mixture of seeds incorporated in margarine or unsalted butter. This fatty porridge is placed in a chipped cup which is thus recycled in a manger. As it cools, the dough hardens, and it is enough to place a baguette to create a small perch. Then hang the cup on a branch by hanging a string on the handle, and voila! Tip # 5: Fat bars are also available commercially, but otherwise you will find many recipes on the internet.
