I wanted to build a peanut feeder which turned out to be fairly easier than I thought. As a bird watcher, I always get to see a lot of House Finches, Mourning Doves, Sparrows, Red-tailed Hawks, Mallard Ducks, Black Pheobes in my backyard but not so much of the nut loving birds!!
I had to buy a chicken wire
2 round plaques(4″*4″)
and a copper wire. Also need a driller, and 3 zip ties.
Rolled up the chicken wire to the inner size of the plaques and tied zip ties on three parts
Then drilled tiny holes on both the plaques
Then thread the copper wire through the first one and tied a knot at the bottom and then pulled it through the rolled up chicken wire and placed the second plaque on top of the chicken wire and pulled the copper wire through the drilled hole and tied it on top and made a loop to hang it up.
Then push a couple of bamboo sticks diagonally across as a perch.
I added the raw peanuts first but they were too small so instead i got the shelled peanuts and they seem to be perfect and its attracting Blue Jays and Mockingbirds!!
