A retro boom box could hold lots of seeds and can be hang from its handle on a tree branch or hook. Hunger’s grandmother’s chandelier was decorated with some old Christmas tree branches and could feed up to 6 birds at a time. A few sliced coconuts and some cotton string topped by a wig make a bizarre yet biodegradable addition to the collection.

In a more elegant manner, a brass cake stand can also provide some food and shelter to our cute feathered creatures. If this year’s winter got a bit too long and cold, why not give your local birds an exotic Caribbean break? Jokes aside, these ingenious, perhaps sometimes tacky examples, are an inspiration on reusing our old stuff in exchange for some beautiful songs.
