This is one of those things that seems pretty obvious but it took me a long time to think of it (so maybe it will help you too). It’s my handy dandy DIY Bird Seed Scooper Duper. Basically, it works like a funnel with a cap on the end.
Here’s how it works:
1. Cut the bottom off a large pop/soda bottle. I cut mine with a serrated kitchen knife and scissors.
2. Use the bottle like a scoop to gather up bird seed from the bag.
3. At the bird feeder, remove the lid and pour in the seed.
This is particularly helpful with tube feeders that have narrow openings. No more spilled seed!
My customers are very happy with this new arrangement.
The bird feeder shown here is a Squirrel Buster (see it at Amazon.com). Very handy for keeping the four-legged beasts from eating the seed.
