Making bird feeder crafts is fun!
I have always enjoyed bird watching, but I never seemed to have enough time to follow my passion.
I discovered the best way to see more wild birds was to attract them into my yard using wild bird feeders.
I found myself adding more and more bird feeders and attracting more and more wild birds. As my hobby grew, I noticed that my children were showing little interest in the wild birds that were visiting our backyard.
Seeing that my children were becoming disconnected with nature, I began searching for ways to get them interested in bird watching.
The best place to start was in my backyard and making bird feeders seemed to be the best way to achieve this.
Our first project was a pine cone bird feeder. We made three of them, one for my daughter, one for my son and, of course, one for me.
What I noticed first, were the questions. Birds eat peanut butter? What kinds of seeds do birds like the most? They were already showing more interest than they ever had before.
Each day they could not wait to see which birds were attracted their feeders.
Soon they were asking for help in identifying the wild birds that were eating from their feeders. They began wanting more... more kinds of wild birds, more backyard bird crafts, etc.
So we worked on attracting more wild birds using new types of wild bird seed and working on new bird feeder crafts.
I am happy to share these bird feeder crafts with you. I hope you and your family enjoy them.

For the last three days, I have had a male rose breasted grosbeak at my feeders. I was quite surprised and pleased to see this unusual visitor; none of
