Gold Star Reviews on this page for Bird Feeder Plans & Kits
Bird feeder plans can be hard to find.
So I decided, “why not ask our ‘handy’ and talented readers if they would share their home-made plans with everyone”.
If you fall into this category of backyard bird watcher with a special ability to build a bird feeder, then please consider sharing your knowledge.
If you would like to see plans that have already been submitted then scroll further down the page.
Please submit your ideas, even if you wouldn’t consider yourself “handy” or talented, but have come up with an interesting way to feed your feathered friends that works.
But please, if you are not
interested in submitting a plan then scroll down this page and see what
other readers have shared, it is always fun to see what other people
We are open to all kinds of bird feeder designs, ones that attract a specific type of bird or some like a platform style feeder that will attract a wide variety of species to your yard.
If you want to build your own bird feeder, “how to build it” is what we want to help you with here, with the assistance of our readers.
When you are sharing please try to be as specific as possible:
Your bird feeder plans do not have to be the best ever, ready to win the grand prize at the county fair! Have a look further down the page and have a look at some home made feeders submitted by other readers. They are awesome and made by hand.
So, if you have a bird feeder plan that you would like to share with us, this is the place to do it!
As soon as you click in the space, the window will expand to give you all the space you need.
