Peanut Butter Bird Seed Feeders

Feeding the birds in the winter is helpful (seeds are hard to find under snow cover) and attracts lovely birds your windowsill. Peanut butter bird seed feeders are easy to make– you’ll need a wire suet cage (you can find these at the hardware store), 1 cup of creamy peanut butter, 1 cup of suet (you can often find this in the meat department at the supermarket), and 2 cups of mixed bird seed. Melt the suet in a saucepan on the stove. Let it cool slightly and mix in the peanut butter. Let it continue to cool until it thickens, then mix in the seed. Pack the seed into the wire cage, and hang it from a tree or the window (with a large suction cup). You can feed the birds and enjoy watching them all winter if you keep the feeder well-stocked!

  1. If you dont have a cage you can just roll a pinecone in peanut butter and stick the seed to that. Its cheaper to for those of us who are poor poor poor 🙂
