Here are some great bird food recipes, to be used anytime, but especially in the cold winter months.
In the winter, experts maintain the best way to bird–watch is in a comfortable chair by the window. By keeping a feeder stocked with a variety of foods, you can attract many different species of birds that will stay with you until spring.
Most people have good luck attracting birds by putting out feeders full of sunflower seeds, cracked corn, and millet, or by hanging mesh bags of suet. (Birds also need water, and you can provide sources ranging from a dripping icicle or a hanging bucket with a hole in the bottom to an electrically treated birdbath.)
But if you really want to impress your avian friends, here are a few recipes you can concoct—strictly for the birds!
