Make Your Own Pine Cone Bird Feeder
"To make a feeder that the
birds will love, you'll need a pine cone,
(any type will do), some wire or string (to hang it by),
birdseed, and some fat. You can either use
suet, peanut butter, or lard. Begin by
drilling a small hole in the top of the cone
so that you can run the string or wire
through it. To make a mixture that will
stick to the cone, first you need to melt
the fat in a pan. Dip a pastry brush into
the melted fat and brush it generously onto
Dip the cone into birdseed and pat
it on, so that the seed sticks to the fat.
You can put quite a bit of seed onto the
cone. Next, place the cone in a plastic bag
and refrigerate for several hours,
which will help to solidify the seed/fat
mixture. Take it outside and hang the
feeder on your favorite tree or someplace
where you can see it from the
house. You won't have to wait long for the
birds to find the feeder."
