Watch the Little Birdie!

Now y'all thought this was going to be about photography, didn't you?
I'm Leslie & I am careful every year to keep my suet feeders stocked for the sweet birdies that stay around all winter in the cold climate here in Michigan, USA. We get quite an assortment of woodpeckers, plus chickadees & nuthatches. I can pass many an hour with binoculars or a camera focused on my feeders.

Some cardboard cut into a festive shape, spread with peanut butter & rolled into bird seed is all you need to give your birds a happy holiday! I'm going to use a packing box & tear the outer layer off to expose the corrugated parts - they should hold the peanut butter better :~)
 

This is a great project for "kids" of all ages. 
Make sure you hang it where you can watch the fun.
And don't be surprised if you attract a squirrel!

  1. I have a little bird house feeder at home and have installed one here at the office too to make sure all my little friends are looked after - we get blue tits, sparrows, finches of some sort, a woodpecker, black birds, robins etc - all so small for when the weather turns!

    I love the idea of this simple idea - will see what I can come up with

  2. Cute idea! Could be interesting in Australia in summer....we'd get inundated by seagulls LOL
