Best Backyard Bird Feeders and Baths

Well, this summer has been a bird-a-palooza for sounds and sightings.  
We added a few little things to the garden for them and they rewarded us,
with their beautiful songs and planting a few surprises in the garden to boot,
more to share on that later.
Fall is fast approaching,
which does not mean the backyard birdfeeding, no, no,  my friend,
it continues!

Here are a few of my favorite pins for the birds, from our Pinterest World and mine.

 This one above is one of my all-time favorite birdfeeders, 
it's organic, recycled and absolutely adorable.

Love this recycled wine bottle and check out the name of wine, so cool.
Rebecca from The GardenRoofCoop is brilliant.


This feeder is pretty and squirrel proof, add a baffle below and you are all set!


Have an old slinkie and a hanger? What to do, make a birdfeeder of course, so sweet.
Found at My Diy Place

This picture frame feeder is simple and architectural at the same time.
Originally featured on Country Living.
Must make.

Now for the hummingbirds, make your own or buy one.
These both work, I find homemade syrup works best.


 My favorite has been the window hanger, offering a more intimate connection.
I also found this summer, the best way to keep wasps away from the feeder,
just rub a little vegetable oil around the seams, it makes it difficult for them to land.
(hee hee hee)

Don't forget the hummingbird perch.
They actually do use it!


And then there are the baths.
You can make it sparkly like this one made from old DVD's 
or as simple as garden rocks and a saucer.
Debbie from Meandmydiy blog has a fantastic tutorial on this gorgeous sparkler.
Definitely please go and check it out!


Which feeders have been the best for you this summer? How do you change them for the fall? Love to hear from you!

BTW, will be taking a hiatus from Garden Mondays and Feeder Fridays for the next 15 days to focus on preparing for the Feast of the Dormition of our Holy Mother
Share the Day.

Hi Presvytera, thanks so much for including my birdbath in your lineup. I think my favorite is the same as yours....the first one up at the top. I'm heading over to check it out now. Thanks again, and have a great day!

Nice collection. I paid big bucks for what you made out of a slinky. But he is loving it for the blue jays.
