I found the instructions to make this cute porch swing bird feeder at the Birds and Blooms website.

Porch Swing Bird Feeder
This porch swing bird feeder will delight people and birds alike!

Get into the swing of things with this unique bird feeder. We chose to use poplar, a wood commonly used for crafts, since this wood comes in the 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch thicknesses used in this project. That way, there’s no need to resaw the boards for thickness. You’ll find it with the craft woods at home improvement stores.

Here’s What You’ll Need
•One 1/4-inch x 6-inch x 36-inch poplar board
•One 1/2-inch x 6-inch x 36-inch poplar board
•4 feet of light-duty chain
•6-inch x 12-inch window screen
•Four screw eyes
•Two S-hooks
•1/4-inch staples
•5/8-inch, 7/8-inch and 1-1/4-inch brads

Recommended Tools
•Table saw
•Power drill
•Pull saw or backsaw
•Small square
•7-ounce hammer
•Small nail set
•Stapler
•Pliers

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Celebrate Urban Birds is having their annual Funky Nests in Funky Places Contest!

Have you noticed any bird nests in your neighborhood? Peek in a hanging flower basket, a street light, a store sign, your barbecue grill, an old boot, or under a bridge! Birds build nests in the strangest places!

Be creative! Take a photo, create some artwork, shoot video, write a story or a poem, or create a sculpture. Just show a bird’s nest built in some out-of-the-way or out-of-this-world place.
