Use a 2 Liter Bottle to Store Birdseed

I have just discovered how easy it is to fill my outdoor bird feeder by pouring it out of a large plastic 2 liter soft drink bottle. I had a friend save me one and when I bought my bird seed this time, I used the top of a smaller plastic drink bottle, cut off to use as a funnel, and poured the birdseed into the large bottle. I have now collected enough large plastic bottles to put the whole bag of birdseed in. Now there is no mess and the birdseed is kept fresh.

What a good idea. Mice,moths and others can't get to the seed.

Yes, a very good idea, thank you :) One thing, do not put the pop bottles in a warm place, as the seeds will start to have ugh, bugs growing in them!

I had bags of seed setting around and realized I had an empty distilled water bottle (water to use in the cpap machine). It was tall and thinner than the usual milk jugs. I let it dry out and filled it but love the idea of using your method of using a soda bottle cut off for the funnel.


Makes it easier to fill. Doesn't take up a lot of space and makes filling the feeder easier for me.
