If you live on the second floor or you have a second floor bedroom, hanging a bird feeder can be problematic. Here's an easy to make bird feeder hanger that puts the feeder outside your window.
- Screw-in hook
- Paint to match the window trim
- Bird feeder
- 2-flag bracket
- Drill with Philips driver bit
Screw the hook into the end of the broomstick. Paint it the same color as the window trim (it'll just look a whole lot better, trust me).
Fill the bird feeder on the hook and stick the flat end into the horizontal flagpole hole of the flag bracket. If there's a keeper screw, tighten it.
If you want to add a suet feeder, simple loop the chain over the stick and push it out. To refill the feeder, just remove the flagpole from the bracket. If you don't have the hand strength to do it that way, you can get another long broomstick, screw on another hook and use it to lift the feeder on and off the hook safely. I recommend the hook and stick method since you are working at least two floors up.

Enjoy the birds.
