One of my favorite things about our old house – I swear I’ll eventually stop bringing it up – was sitting at the kitchen table enjoying my breakfast and watching the birds outside. I can’t help it, I’m an animal lover. Especially when the animal is more afraid of me than I am of it. And not having to clean up after them is another bonus. I often referred to them as “my birds”. At one point I tried to name them (omg, I’m more like my mom than I thought). (Love you Mama!!!)
So here at our new place, I wanted to get on the good side of our new feathery neighbors. The girls and I found some pine cones along our new walking route which are way nicer than the cones from our old trail. (New house: +1) Grabbed a few more supplies and made a few bird feeders.
Pine Cone Bird Feeders
Supplies: Pine cones, any size. Smooth peanut butter. Bird seed. Yarn, ribbon, or string.
Directions: Using a butter knife (or your finger) spread a thin layer of peanut butter onto each opened scale. Sprinkle generously with bird seed. Attach a yarn and hang on a tree.
The little guys devoured these. Yay!
