A Rather Rustic Bird Feeder

Danger Mouse mentioned on Friday he wanted to make a bird feeder.  We randomly found a pine cone in a car park in Taupo yesterday so it was only appropriate it came home with us to start a new life as a bird feeder.

He told me how to make it.  Roll it in peanut butter and then roll it in bird seed.  "I saw it on TV Mum, Oso the Bear made one"... gotta give that annoying little bear some credit then.

He did the whole lot himself, apart from the tying on of the string and the attachment to the tree.  It got rather messy.  Next time I know to make them outside.

Although I am seriously doubting its ability to function as a bird feeder while Oscar the Cat is about .....

Linking in with other mummies here.
