Bird Feeder for Wax-Eye/Tauhou

This is a cheap way of feeding waxeye (tauhou) birds in winter.

It actually works, have a go!

You need an apple cut in half.

And you need a string. I use fine slices of NZ flax (harakeke).

Attach the string to the apple that both cut sides of the apple are exposed and tie a knot.

Hang the apples on a tree.

A few days later only the apple skins are left and you can add them to your compost or worm farm.
