The bottle feeder............................................................ not all the birds got it

This is a remake of a little clip I shared last year... it still makes me smile.
The feeder was a great success before the squirrels finally destroyed it.


Just a small plastic tray that screws onto any old bottle... it was cheap and cheerful but a successful feeder.
Some of the birds couldn't work it out though... watch out for the little Blue Tit at the end.

they don't mind it swinging at all, just a swinging and eating... i remember what that feeder looked like AFTER the squirrel

HI Andrew that is a great idea. where can you get the bottom bit to screw on? Were there olles on the bottl where the blue Titwas pecking? I could not see them.

My cheeks hurt from smiling. If my husband and the dog weren't already asleep, I'd have roared with laughter. What a treasure that film clip is.
