finished truck bird feeder

Guest post by George.  George is an 8 year old who loves animals and going to his friends’ houses.

My mom gave this bird feeder to me for Christmas*. I liked it. I was very surprised when she gave it to me, because it was awesome because I like birds.

It was not put together, because it was a kit.  It was hard to put together.  We needed a screwdriver because it had a lot of screws.  The hood and the back and all the wheels are kept on by screws.

Since it was already built at Christmas time with Grandpa and Dad, we had to take it apart again.  It was easier to take apart than it was to put together, because I had help from my mom.  We had to take it apart because my mom did not want to paint over the screws.  (Actually, it was so that we could get all the parts painted on all sides.)

I used a pink spray paint (Watermelon Splash) on everything first.  It was easier to paint the whole thing one color first.  When the first two coast were dry I picked some pieces to paint blue.

The bird feed came with my bird feeder. (It was part of his Christmas gift.) After we hung it up, we used a cup to put it in my bird feeder.

One day mom saw a European starling at the feeder.  I saw a blue jay flying past another day.

*I found this bird feeder at a consignment store, in a box, looking almost brand new.  In case you are wondering, it came in at less that $10.
