A retro boom box [1] could hold lots of seeds and can be hang from its handle on a tree branch or hook. Hunger’s grandmother’s chandelier [2] 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 [3]? Jokes aside, these ingenious, perhaps sometimes tacky examples, are an inspiration on reusing our old stuff in exchange for some beautiful songs.
