Feeding the Birds...& Friends!

Following Minnie's interest in birdwatching we decided to encourage our feathered friends to come a little closer to our windows. We made a simple bird feeder from an old garden seed tray & a few pebbles, & placed outside next to our homemade birdbath (a plastic sweet tin with a large rock in the centre). We added our bird food & water, then waited inside to spot the birds as they came to visit.

Here are a few of our visitors...

We also made these bird treats from a few slices of stale bread. Minnie chose her favourite cookie cutters to create the shapes, then we added a hole in the top using a straw, & threaded ribbon through ready to hang them outside.

Wonder who is going to get to these first?

  1. The bunny bread is a great idea! I hope the birds and not the squirrels will get them first!

  2. What a cute idea. Kids love to see animals.
