Bird watching is an exciting hobby for many people worldwide. It is no wonder many of them keep bird feeders in their gardens. The feeding of birds has various benefits, including creating a serene and beautiful natural environment. However, the materials used to make conventional bird feeders are not always eco-friendly. Fortunately, bamboo bird feeders offer a sustainable ecological alternative for bird-watching enthusiasts. In this post, we dive into the journey of bamboo bird feeders, from sustainable sourcing to manufacturing and usage.

Bird Feeders on Market

When searching for bird feeders, you'll discover several options available in the market today. However, most of them are made of metal, wood, or plastic. Such as

  • tray or platform feeders
  • hopper or "house" feeders
  • window feeders, tube feeders
  • Nyjer feeders
  • suet feeders.

Did you know there's a more environmentally-friendly option for attracting a wide variety of birds to your yard with long-lasting results?

Look no further than bamboo bird feeders! These innovative feeders are the latest trend in bird-feeding technology and for good reason. Not only are bamboo bird feeders environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing, but they're also durable, lightweight, and resistant to mold and moisture. Plus, with their natural texture and design, they blend seamlessly into the surrounding nature, making them even more attractive to birds. Let's know more about it.

What is a bamboo bird feeder?

Bamboo bird feeders are made from the bamboo plant, which is a sustainable, fast-growing material that is durable and weather-resistant. These feeders can come in various sizes and styles, but they all have one thing in common – they’re 100% natural and renewable.

What are the advantages of using bamboo bird feeders?

There are many reasons why bamboo bird feeders are becoming an increasingly popular choice among bird lovers. Some of the benefits of using these feeders include:

1. Eco-friendliness

Bamboo is a sustainable material that grows quickly and is easy to renew. It is known for its rapid growth, replenishing speed, and durability. Its harvesting doesn't require replanting since it regenerates naturally through its vast root network. Bamboo also doesn't require artificial irrigation or fertilization, making it an ideal eco-friendly material.


Bamboo bird feeders are intentionally crafted with a focus on environmental friendliness and sustainability. The utilization of bamboo material in the construction of bird feeders is guaranteed to be sustainably sourced and devoid of any contribution to deforestation, as certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Compared with plastic feeders, Bamboo bird feeders present a viable and environmentally conscious substitute for conventional plastic bird feeders, thereby promoting sustainability.

2. Durability

Bamboo is stronger than steel and resists damage from weather conditions such as rain, sun, and wind.
The bird feeder serves as a secure and sheltered habitat for avian species, allowing close observation.

The feeder's bamboo material resists moisture, thereby preventing the accumulation of detrimental microorganisms such as bacteria, mold, or mildew. The underlying fact is that bamboo possesses a dense fiber arrangement that exhibits a reduced propensity for moisture absorption, thereby enhancing its resistance to corrosion and mold formation. This is also one of the most apparent features that bamboo bird feeders outperform wooden bird feeders.

3. Aesthetics

One of the foremost advantages associated with bamboo bird feeders lies in their aesthetic appeal. The inherent tactile qualities of bamboo material contribute to a sense of harmonious integration with the natural environment, thereby enhancing its appeal to avian species. Bamboo bird feeders may perfectly integrate into your garden's landscape, fostering your residential's beauty.

4. Resistance to pests

Bamboo bird feeders have natural defenses against pests, making them less likely to be affected by ants, squirrels, or other creatures.

5. Versatility

Bamboo feeders can be used for a variety of bird food, including seeds, fruits, and suet cakes.

6. Easy to Clean and Maintain

The smooth surface of bamboo makes it easy to wipe down, and many bamboo feeders can be disassembled for easy cleaning. This means that you can keep your feeder looking clean and fresh for longer periods of time.

How to DIY a Bamboo Bird Feeder?

DIY to make a bamboo bird feeder is a simple project for anyone with a knack for woodworking or other forms of handiwork.

Here are the steps you can follow:

Step 1: Gather materials

Before starting the project, you will need to gather some materials that are readily available. These include a bamboo cane, a saw, a drill, some string, and some birdseed.

Step 2: Cut the bamboo cane

Cut the bamboo cane into two equal parts using a handsaw or a saw with a fine blade. One part will be used as the bird feeder, and the other as the roof.

Step 3: Drill holes

Drill two holes in the top of the bird feeder, approximately 1” from the upper rim, and 1” apart. Drill two holes on each end of the roof, equidistant from the center, and approximately 1” from each end.

Step 4: Add color to the bamboo

Using acrylic paint, paint a design or pattern on the bamboo feeder and roof. Allow the paint to dry completely before proceeding.

Step 5: Attach the roof to the feeder

Insert a rope through the holes at either end of the bamboo roof and tie it tightly around the bamboo cane feeder. The knot should be fixed below the entrance hole.

Step 6: Add decorative beads

Add decorative beads on the rope above and below the feeder to prevent the roof from sliding down the rope.

Step 7: Add Camera for Real-time Video Record

If you want to watch the birds when they come and eat from your bird feeder, you can add a camera to record.

Building your own bamboo bird feeder is a fun and easy DIY project to attract birds to your backyard. Although you need to prepare some materials and invest some time to do it. However, if you are not good at DIY jobs, it will be hard work.
