I’ve made a lot of bird houses and feeders over the years and they’re always fun projects. This window bird feeder was a fun and easy project to build. I used only one board to make this, along with a small piece of aluminum screen, and some screw eyes. Using suction cups you can mount this easily to an outside window and watch the birdies from the inside. This feeder was heavily influenced by a plan from a book titled: Birdhouses & More. It’s a good book and the author does a great job of keeping things simple. I modified my feeder slightly from what the author does. The cuts and assembly are extremely easy and this makes it an excellent beginning woodworking project.
If you make one of these be sure to post a picture of it over on the WoodLogger Facebook Page. I’d love to see how yours turns out.
