The average bird eats its own weight in food every day. Here's how to help our feathered friends and enjoy their company at the same time.
These shelters and feeders were carefully researched by our designer. The feeders include a fruit-and-suet feeder plus two redwood models with plexiglass sides. Each holds about five pounds of bird seed.
Actually, by slightly varying the size of the opening, the birdhouses can fit the needs of any size birds you may have in your area. The full-size traceable patterns and detailed step-by-step instructions make these projects great for the beginning woodworker. To obtain Bird Feeders & Shelters, No. 684 (three feeders and three houses as pictured), send $2.50.
