When I saw this https://thechickenstreet.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/wine-bottle-bird-feeder/, I really wanted to make one! So I did! Everything is reclaimed from the wood pile. We redid the deck and had a lot of scraps lying around.

Thank you! Please do and share it! I'd love to see other versions! I used nails, don't do that, though, it's pretty instabile. I will add screws for the safety of bird's heads...

I was just talking to DH about making these for Christmas presents - no worries, he does renovations and would only use nails for finishing.  I just love that you reused scrap wood and a bottle for it too!

Simple, but elegant design, and it's great that you were able to recycle scraps of wood to make it.

We don't put out birdfeeders anymore, but when we did, the raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, and even deer, ate more of the seed than the birds did!
