bird feeding idea


Many people feed the birds and a good suet mixture is very good for this. I have many ideas for feeding the birds and want to share some with those interested. Here is one. Easy Loader. Just give it a click and get started.

Making your own suet...that is just too cool. I'm always buying it at the wildlife feed store!


That is just too awesome, Kildale!



That little chickadee is so precious and adorable. Reminds me of the one my friend and I had feeding out of our hand the other day at Springbank park! They're as tame as can be, even though it's a public park, because people are constantly feeding them.


Anyway...great slide. Love your bird slides most of all. You're making me want to go buy one. I'll be getting a conure next but I'm still not over my last bird yet....Henry.

Here is the main recipe that I use. I have quite a few. I might post one with each feeder that I post.
Ingredients:
1 cup lard
1 cup chopped suet (usually found in the supermarket's frozen pies/pastry section)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup cornmeal
hand full of birdseed (optional)

Method:
Melt lard, suet and peanut butter in the microwave until soft and runny. Add remaining ingredients and let cool a bit. Before it's too solid, pour into molds or in suet holders - or - push it into log feeders or into a hanging pine cone.
