You can purchase a large bag of bird seed on Amazon. I like buying the big bags so I don’t have to keep going back to the store. Plus, it’s nice having it come straight to your house.
I don’t have to worry about toting it around the store. Plus, I usually find a pretty good deal on the bird seed too. They have some gorgeous bird feeders too!
I love watching the birds every morning. I have one right outside my kitchen window on a tree. It’s so pretty because when I’m washing dishes or just in the kitchen, I can see all the pretty birds.

How do you make bird feeders without peanut butter?
Use the tip of the utility knife to place a small x mark into the bottom of the carton (think of the X a straw goes into on a drink lid). Repeat this process on the opposite side of the milk carton.
5. Use a piece of yarn to attach to the milk carton to hang the bird feeder. Staple the yarn to the milk carton if necessary. This step tends to make it more secure especially if there are winds.
6. Add some bird seed in the center of the bird feeders and hang outside for the birds to enjoy.
