Homemade Bird Seed

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup of vegetable shortening¼ cup of peanut butter (either crunchy or smooth)
  • ¼ cup of flour
  • i/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup of either cornmeal or oatmeal

How to make it!

  1. Mix together in a bowl:
  • ¼ cup of vegetable shortening, ¼ cup of peanut butter, ¼ cup of flour and  1 cup of  either cornmeal or oatmeal.
  1. For more variety, add some millet, cracked corn or sunflower seeds.
  2. Put the mixture in a small mesh bag and tie it either on a tree branch or around the trunk of a tree. You can also use a butter knife to spread some of the mixture on the rough bark of a tree. Don’t apply too much to the tree bark.
  3. Spread 2 or 3 tablespoons of suet on the shady side of the tree so it won’t melt as much.
  4. If you hang the suet bag from a branch, woodpeckers may not be able to get to it. Woodpeckers prefer something solid, such as a tree limb, to hang onto when they eat.
  5. Remember to involve an adult when you make this recipe. Adults enjoy helping you mix up all the ingredients.
