How to make a nifty bird feeder out of a recycled coffee can:

 

Components: 

empty coffee can

two plastic lids

a wooden dowel or small tree branch

a piece of nylon cord

 

Start with an empty coffee can:

Remove label and bottom of can:

Find the second lid

Cut half moons in the two lids, run the nylon cord through the can and tie it, hiding the knot in the can

Place the lids on the ends of the can with the nylon cord on top, align the half moons and make little slits

in the plastic lids to run your dowel or small tree branch through

Shove the dowel/branch through the slits (takes some shoving, but you want the perch to be attached really tight)

Should look like this

Put a knot in the cord, as close to can as possible, for stability (make sure knot is in the middle of the can, for balance)

I've had these things hanging in my yard for close to twenty years now

and don't recall ever having a problem with squirrels.

Perhaps because they're kept so busy with all my other feeders.

I distract them, the Blue Jays and the Starlings, with corn and rejected bread from a local bakery.

Works slick. 56be45aa827df_YESGrin.GIF.48ac3054e0d430
