Trying to attract some feathered friends? Try making your own bird seed feeders:

You can save money by creating your own hanging treats, instead of purchasing preformed bells or biscuits.

Conversely, you can spend a ton of money spoiling your wild animal friends. You can attract a lot of wild bird company by hanging out a customized treat. They are shamelessly friendly to those who feed them, much like those people who only come to your parties when there is free food & booze.
