Birds in Winter

White Breasted Nuthatch

Hairy Woodpecker

A reminder to feed the birds!

And a recipe for the suet cakes that woodpeckers, nuthatches, and chickadees love to eat

2 # melted lard
1 C crunchy peanut butter
1 C yellow corn meal
Bird seed – enough to thicken

Pour into 9”x13” pan and cool to harden
Cut into 6 suet-feeder-sized cakes

Photos were taken at feeders near the Glen by Richard Simons
