DIY Valentine for the Birds

valentine for birds
Happy Valentine’s Day!

This year, we made a tasty treat for the outdoor birds to enjoy until the thaw of springtime. This treat is made with all things that wild birds can use to help them survive plunging temperatures. The kids and I usually always make some sort of treat. For this one, we collected pinecones  from the woods, coated them with peanut butter and rolled them in seeds. We even turned them into a heart just in time for Valentine’s Day. Immediately, this sweet and savory treat was visited by a black capped chickadee.  I am betting the same thing will happen in your yard too.

Suet Wreath

Well this week is about the birds again. I hope you don’t mind!  We really have taken up backyard birding at the feeder.  We love feeding the birds a variety of things including sunflower seeds, thistle, suet and even oranges for the Orioles come springtime.  This week I shared over on HGTV Garden how to make a delicious suet wreath feeder for the wild birds in your very own kitchen.  It is easy and the birds just love it especially woodpeckers!  Click here to make your very own.
