HomeStyle: This feeder is for the birds

Posted: January 31, 2014 at 10:59 a.m.

There’s nothing better than watching songbirds at feeders during winter’s dreary months.

Cardinals in ruby red coats, woodpeckers in black-and-white tuxedos and bluebirds in royal finery brighten the grayest day.

Bird feeders for a home-based habitat are a personal choice, and options range from high end, high-priced feeders to smearing homemade suet on a tree trunk. See Saturday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette HomeStyle section for do-it-yourself instructions for building a bird feeder stand that will help brighten a dreary yard.
