Take a standard 2L drink bottle and mark out and cut circular holes about a third of the way up from the base. Make sure there are no sharp edges.

Just below the holes make two small holes and push a cane through the bottle to act as a perch.

Step 2 of How to Make a Bird Feeder

Feed a wire through the screw cap so that you can hang the feeder in your garden.

To give the feeder some stability you can put gravel in the base. Finally, put food up to the level of the circular holes and hang in your garden.
