In order to attract and care for the local wildlife so that residents can get a good look at their feathered friends, the home set out at making their own bird feeders. These homemade bird feeders are made using pinecones, peanut butter and bird seeds.

“It’s sticky but it’s fun! They’re bound to bring flocks of birds”, commented Sheila, one of the residents at Eckington Court.

“It’s an easy and fun activity that everybody loved. With these pinecones, we can set up feeding stations all over our huge garden space, as they can be hung nearly anywhere”, added Anita Marsden, Activity Coordinator at Eckington Court

With Eckington Courts large and enclosed garden, all kinds of wildlife are sure to come sniffing around for some food!
