Homemade Suet Cakes for our Back Yard Birds

Homemade Suet Cakes for our Back Yard Birds

Homemade Suet Cakes for our Back Yard Birds. This is really my first time to make homemade suet cakes. But I knew the ones I had purchased from a big box store was not getting eaten.

I used the follow ingredients: 16 cups of birdseed included Sunflowers, millet, peanuts, freeze dried worms, sunflower chips, shelled peanuts, chopped tree nuts, Bark Butter Bits, cherries, cranberries and calcium. 2 1/2 cups of peanut butter 2 pounds of lard 2 store bought suet cakes Made up a total of 14 cakes.

This is very economical to do and your birds will appreciate your efforts. I will say it doesn’t take very long. My next diy will be a seed cylinder.

Live Bird Cam Watching Birds looking for food on a winter day

Live Bird Cam Watching Birds looking for food on a winter day

Live Bird Cam Watching Birds looking for food on a winter day. Birds looking for food on a winter day. Both our ground feeders and bird feeders was super busy even before sunrise due to about 4 inches of snow over night. There were mourning doves, junco, cardinals on the ground feeder before I hit the record button. These birds need to find food sources in the winter time especially with everything covered in snow.

Fill your feeders with the best bird foods that provide energy. Birds will eat to keep warm during these cold days. Winter can be hard season for many of these birds so keep you feeders refilled with seed. Your bird feeders can attract plenty of birds to your backyard or garden and will help them survive on a winter day.
