Feed the Birds: Recycled Birdfeeder and Corn

I only wish I had a tree (or backyard) to tempt many birds to come for a visit. Even North loves watching things fly by! For those lucky suburban or rural dwellers, this ecotastic twofer is completely made up of reused materials! The unique Recycled Birdfeeders ($49) are tray-hanging, platform feeders constructed with recycled parts from birdhouses and leftover asphalt roof shingles.

Simply adding corn to a platform feeder like this one will attract a different group of birds than our millet version — if you're curious why (and who)

.

Add cracked corn ($5.99 for five pounds) to any feeder — especially a larger one for those big birds — and you'll see other feathered friends like:

  • starlings
  • grackles
  • jays
  • juncos
  • bobwhite quail
  • doves
  • ring-necked pheasants
  • white-throated sparrows and house sparrows

My parents have always put out corn, but it ends up going to the squirrels!

My friend feeds birds corn all the time. The bird feed stores in Portland sell dried cobs and all she did was hammer a nail in the fence and the corn cob can go right over it. The birds and squirrels love it.
