Bird feeders come in many shapes, sizes and styles. With these free bird feeder plans, you can build a bird feeder with plexiglass sides to be able to view the amount of seed in the feeder. The top has as flip to open lid for easy filling, and the perch on each side is large enough to accommodate most songbirds.

This is an easy project to build, one that will bring years of enjoyment.
