I have baked a little cake for my feathered friends to get them through this freak of a winter we are having.
You see, it is almost February and it seems that we are finally going to have a bit of winter here….
As in, it might freeze…..
The low lands have been the wet lands these past months. So far we haven’t had any winter but instead many Fall-like storms with enormous amounts of rain and wind and hail.
Well all that wind and that huge amount of rain didn’t exactly go very well with my birdfeed chandelier. The seeds just blew right off. And since that left my little feathered friends hungry I decided to cook up some bird food that was weather proof.
I didn’t do a tutorial. Too easy.
Just melt some solid type fat (grease, lard whatever you want to call it), mix in bird seed, fill a container, cool and let harden, use hot water to melt the outside to loosen it from the container, stack, embellish with cranberries, put outside, wait for the birds to come and watch them eat it (take pictures first….).
Added bonus. It looks really nice in the grayness that is our garden right now. A bright spot of red.
I like it, the birds like it, mission accomplished.
