Homemade Bird Feeders

We’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors now that spring is here, well, that and it’s like 70 degrees every day (awesome). Ken has taken a liking to chasing birds around the yard, and we have taken a liking to watching Ken chase the birdies. He runs after them, yelling “hiiiii birdie!” with his arms out, like a mummy.

We need more birds.

We stopped at our local Ace Hardware for some other stuff, and they have a generous display of bird food to purchase by the pound. So we filled a bag with the most generic one they had (hey, so if you know anything about birds and bird food, please do tell). It cost us a whooping $1.50.

The Ingredients

What you need:

  • Bird food (bird feed?)
  • Spatula
  • Peanut Butter
  • Toilet Paper tubes (or pine cones or whatever)

Spread the peanut butter on the tube, roll in bird seed.

Come on birdies!

Hang in a tree for the birdies to enjoy.

We shall see tonight if this milkshake brings the birds to the yard.
