Personal gardens with bird feeders and bird houses play a significant contribution to protecting wild birds. A bird feeder is a container placed outdoors for the birds to feed on bird seed. Bird feeding is a popular and convenient way to observe birds closely. Sometimes, the cameras are fixed near the bird feeder for bird watching and observing nature's wonders. Many types of feeders are available commercially, and some basic designs can be made at home. Simple seed feeders can be made from recycled materials such as empty milk cartons, wood planks, coconut shells, or other containers. Coconut shell is one material that can be used for making a bird feeder. Buddha Handicrafts from Kanyakumari, Tamilnadu, is a place where coconut shells are recycled and used for making bird feeders.
Coconut shells are eco-friendly and readily available. Artists reuse these shells by processing them. Shells are used as a container for bird seeds. They are scrapped, and polished, and the ready-to-use seed bars are put into them. A rope loop is attached to the shell to hang it outdoors. A natural bird feeder attracts birds to eat seeds. Buddha Handicrafts provides employment opportunities to women artist utilizing their leisure time.
