Build a Bird Feeder – Free Plans

Build a bird feeder with our simple plans. This bird feeder has hinges on the roof to make adding bird food easy, plexiglass on the sides so you can see when more bird food needs to be added, and dowels on the side for the birds to stand or rest.

Bird feeder plans include illustrated drawings with measurements and cutting details for the parts.

This bird feeder can be mounted to a pole or drill some holes on the side to hang it.

  1. I wish the plans were easier to download. The only download button I see is for a PDF reader which I already have. Why not just put a print plan button?

  2. Great plans to follow step by x by step thanks Robert Pena,

  3. yes I like the bird house

  4. This as simple as it gets. Making one after dinner.

  5. Thank you for the plans for my bird feeder. I think their just what I needed. The plans are simple and I will put them to good use.

  6. i uses a piece of inner tube for a ridge cap to seal hinged roof joint and a couple of small screen latches to secure the hinged roof section. keeps the bad guys from lifting it. makes it to load seed and still stay secure.

  7. I used a piece of 1/2 in pvc pipe instead of the wooden dowel.
    Wont decay with weather. My birdies will love seeing whats for dinner.
    Thanks for the simple plans.

  8. So how do you download the plans?
    I don’t see anyplace that I can do that.

  9. Just what I was looking for, thanks!
    I put a couple of strips of wood to hold the plexiglass up, then didn’t have to cut that internal corner in it. I had to reduce the height (width) of the plexiglass a bit to accommodate this of course.
    I made one for us, then two more as Christmas gifts.

  10. This bird feeder is a perfect project for my grandson. I’ll assemble the parts and he will have fun helping put it together. Thanks!

  11. Hi great plans. Thank you! Only question I have is what is your measurement fro the outside edge to the 1/4 inch groove for the plexiglass? Thanks
