Thrifty Thursday-Bird Buffet

We stopped buying birdseed long ago.
It is one of those things that is now considered a luxury,
and it doesn't fit in the budget.

One thing we do to provide for nature
is to use native plants in the landscape
that have berries or attract insects that birds might like.
Here's another idea that may attract birds to your yard.
It's also a great homeschool project!

This recipe was found in

Homemade Suet
1/3 loaf stale dry bread
1 can fruit cocktail
1/2 C peanut butter

In food processor, break down bread,
along with fruit cocktail.
Mix with peanut butter in large bowl.
Place in mesh bags and hang in trees.

I didn't have fruit cocktail, so I used some pineapple
that needed to be used up.
Instead of mesh bags, I cut up an oatmeal box
and hung it up with fishing string.

Bon Apetit birdies!
