    Awesome. Sounds a great idea. When I go to my grans house we put bird seeds in her bird feeder and then I sit down and watch all the different kinds of birds coming to feed from it. It is fun!

    Cool. I would love to feed birds but it rains too much in our area so they won't come:(. And the squirrels are always on our neighbours Jenny, Alex, Gregory and Theo's bird feeder. Though, I have seen all the different types of tits on that feeder.

    I made a bird feeder out of a butternut squash. Cut the insides out and made windows for the birds to sit in it.

    That is very interesting because a lot of birds come and feed in our garden, and we can attract even more birds. Our latest new arrival is the wren!
