For the Birds

After you have eaten your orange or made your favorite recipe using your citrus fruit(s), keep your peel and recycle it into a bird feeder. It's so easy and it's perfect to feed the migrating birds that may be resting in your backyard. 

Try to hang them on trees and shrubs that are easily viewed from your window, so you can watch the birds come and feast!


Materials:

  • orange
  • (4) pieces of twine, yarn or string, cut into 24″ lengths
  • bird seed

With a sharp knife, cut the orange in half – scoop out the flesh. Pierce 4 small holes on opposite sides, about 1/2″ from the top edge of each half. Thread one piece of twine through a hole, and out the opposite end. Repeat with the second piece of twine in the remaining holes (you’ll have an “X”). Gather the ends together and tie in a knot. Repeat with the other half. Fill with birdseed and hang from sturdy branches outside.
