We have two platform bird feeder plans for you to build. One is a fairly simple design, the other a little more complex with added perches.
The first one is a very simple plan for a large (two feet square) platform bird feeder.
Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for We have had such good results from using screening material for the substrate of our hopper birdfeeder design, we also built a platform feeder using the same screen for the platform base.
The screen material allows the bird seed, chaff and bird droppings to dry quickly after rain or snow.
It also allows for easy cleaning by simply thumping the screen from below and blowing away the chaff when necessary.

You may have noticed that the wooden 4x4 post is attached to one of the wire fence T-posts with "zip ties" or cable ties.
This is so we can test several places before deciding where to permanently fix the post and feeder.
Zip ties will last at least a year exposed to the sun before they deteriorate.
So if you use the 1 last update 2020/07/07 this idea, you will need to inspect and replace zip ties as needed or your feeder may fall over.So if you use this idea, you will need to inspect and replace zip ties as needed or your feeder may fall over.

Below are platform bird feeder plans from Bird Watching Bliss visitor, Ken Ablett of Chesapeake, Virginia.
"I have been using a platform feeder of my design for years. It is unlike any other I have ever seen. I would like to share it with others who enjoy back yard birds." Thanks Ken!
*Note that this design does not have a mesh bottom to allow for drainage so be sure to clean often and exchange the seed if it becomes wet (more of an issue in rainy, humid climates).
Otherwise you may have problems with mold which is not good for the birds.
Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for We would recommend altering this plan to have a mesh screen for easier cleaning. You should also spray down the top to keep it clean, especially if bird feces accumulates.
Cut the 2"" piece for the high lander at the 2'' holes as follows.
On one side 1-1/2" from top and 12-1/2" from bottom.
On facing side 3"" from bottom.
This will give you high landers and mid landers on each side of the 2"" upright.
High lander dowels
Drill very small hole for slip-guard nails at:
When assembled, the slip-guard brads will keep the lander dowels from shifting position - and they will if not checked.
Place 4" x 4" post two feet into the ground a tamp dirt firmly around edges.
Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Suggest adding water to help settle the dirt.
Let ground dry and proceed when post is secure.
Place squirrel guard pipe over the post prior to adding the platform on top of the post.
On platform base (top side) mark mid points each side (16""1""https://www.birdwatching-bliss.com/image-files/platform-bird-feeder.jpg""right""8""8""236""500"" sides will fit down over the 4"" when it is in the ground.
"On our feeder we get blue jays, cardinals, titmouse, nuthatch, chickadee, red headed woodpecker, downy woodpecker, doves, black birds, red-winged blackbirds, juncos, and an occasional sparrow. It is not unusual, in fact it is common, to have three different kinds on the feeder at the same time."
Good luck building your feeder. We hope you attract as many birds as Ken has.
