Making birdfeeders for National Bird day @WBCL


In the past we have made bird feeders from pine cones but they are in short supply and do not require any creativity or crafting skills to create. The birds do like them though. I found this pattern on the internet at Family Fun  and decided to try it instead, especially since it uses recyclable materials.  We altered it a bit to use up some sticky backed fun foam instead of crafts sticks and decorated with leftover stickers. Our handle is a chenille stem left from the holidays. Everyone got a baggie of seeds to add when they got home. Thanks to to librarian Jeanette Larson for her page of links and coloring pages. http://www.jeanettelarson.com/Resources.htm I especially appreciated the link to the National Geographic site for bird identification: http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/birding/backyard-bird-identifier/
