Drew and I made some birdfeeders today, out of pinecones, peanut butter, and birdseed. It was one of those projects that Mom ended up doing most of it, but it was reasonably fun, and Drew enjoyed throwing the birdseed around.
I like keeping the birdfeeders filled all winter with sunflower seeds, and suet cakes. The little birds flock to it all day long, and the turkeys make their rounds every day too. In this area they tell us not to put out birdfeeders until after December to ensure that the bears are safely hibernating, but I put it out earlier than that since we've only had one bear incident since we've lived here.
