School Holiday Bird Feeder Project


School holidays are here again and at our house, we like to do a few DIY projects. This one is fairly simple to make, but it has the added bonus of bringing beautiful Tui’s into the yard for hours of bird watching and song interpretation.

We’ve got Tui’s that sound like they’re out of various movies – my favourite being a big male Tui who really does sound like he’s off the set of a Star Wars movie. For this feeder, you’ll need small dark plastic containers about 3cm in diameter and 5cm deep, some red or yellow gaffer tape, rose water, sugar, and warm water.

To put it all together here’s a link to The Bug Boy’s Tui Feeder video

If you’d like to try something a little harder, here are a few options from Forest and Bird.
