 Great winter food for all garden birds!

What you will need!

  • Large mixing bowl or bucket
  • Measuring cup
  • Cup of black-oil sunflower seeds
  • Pound bag of inexpensive wild birdseed
  • Cup of cracked corn
  • 3 tablespoons ground cayenne pepper
  • Tablespoon
  • Large wooden spoon
  • Storage container with lid

How to make it!

  1. Empty the bag of wild bird seed into a large bowl or clean bucket.
  2. Measure a cup of black-oil sunflower seeds and add to the bird seed mix in the bowl. High-energy black-oil sunflower seeds are often the first to be selected and eaten by discriminating birds. These thin-shelled seeds attract a wide variety of song birds and smaller birds like sparrows.
  3. Add a measured one cup of cracked corn to the mixture.
  4. Measure the 3 tablespoons of cayenne powder. Add it to the bird seed mix in the bowl or bucket. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until the cayenne pepper, seeds and cracked corn are well-mixed.
  5. Transfer the hot-pepper bird seed mixture to a large storage container with a lid. Store in a cool, dry place. Before using the hot-pepper seed each time, give the closed container a shake.
