Please, do not put honey, Jell-O, brown sugar, fruit, or red food coloring in your feeder! Honey ferments rapidly when diluted with water and can cause mouth sores and even kill hummingbirds. The red dye has NO beneficial ingredients, and it is not necessary to color the water to attract birds to your feeder. Further, there are unverified reports that red dye can cause tumors in hummers.

Bird Feeder. If you make this put the bottom spoon as close to the bottom as possible. I ended up putting 3 spoons in mine. I used a 2 liter bottle. It blows around in windy weather more then the store bought bird feeders I have. You need to make a funnel to fill it but the good thing about this is the squirrel doesn't seem to like it... well at least not yet anyway ~!~

"I found this old cast iron ashtray at a flea market and saw a birdbath right away! I checked my stash and found an old aluminum tray with a handle that fit perfectly in the top, so sprayed them both and sanded so the iron would show thru. I had this cute little china bird which is really an old salt shaker and epoxyed him to the handle."
