Far Guy made this peanut butter feeder.
He drilled a hole in the plastic peanut butter cover and inserted a wire that he tied into a knot on the underside….that wire then became the hanger on the top side. He cut two X marks on each side near the bottom and inserted a small dowel for a perch. Then he marked and cut out feeding holes on each side with a knife.
The little Chickadees love this feeder. Yesterday I watched them as it swung to and fro…they are quite the aerial acrobats.
Soon we will fill the holes with more peanut butter so it is easier for the birds to eat. They almost have it tunneled out on both sides. I have another “for the birds” 99 cent jar of peanut butter waiting.
So there you have it…a simple feeder! I know there is some controversy about birds and straight peanut butter…add some sunflower seeds or corn meal if you like.
We only use this feeder during the dead of winter…otherwise it might attract skunks!
