    That is really cute! And you know, I had no idea birds ate fruit. I thought they just ate seeds. We have these little tiny birds (starling maybe) building a nest inside our brick mailbox, I should probably put something out for them.

      I didn’t either Cat but I’ve been reading about a few types. I REALLY must be getting old. LOL Your birds…are they regular sparrows? They’ll usually nest anywhere.

    My father is a true Bird watcher and feeder. But I bet he does not know about this idea you have. I will share this with him and see what he says.

    I love this idea! I have tons of hummingbirds outside my apartment and this looks like a great way to feed them.

    Just be sure to change the fruit out daily so it doesn’t ferment. The wildlife federation around here was having problems with DRUNK birds a few years back. They were having problems flying because they were impaired. They were flying into quite a few car windows and such. At first the health dept. thought they had some kind of disease and that’s why they were dying that way, but autoposies to rule out bird flu showed they were intoxicated from fruits that people were putting out and leaving out for days. So just change out the fruit daily so you don’t end up with alcoholic little bird brains. LOL, well it’s not really funny, sorry.

    Hey there! This is so cute and I’m going to get the kids busy this week! Perfect for their grandmothers and aunts! Thank you for the idea – I linked your project on my blog. :)

    I love this. I am going through about 6 oranges a day and a 32 oz bottle of grape jelly every 2 days. Orioles, Grosbeaks & Tangers have taken over this year. I’ve even seen a few of the Red winged Black birds nibbling on the oranges and strawberrys. I was going to order another orange feeder but think Ill make one, thanks!!
