    kmergirl's Note:

    I make these in the fall and winter and hang them on the trees and bushes around my house. In the harsh cold days of winter I want to make sure little peeps (birds) will make through the harsh winter. These are fun to make with kids and make a fun weekend family time project. (These are not edible for humans)

      When I saw these I was trying to come up with favors for a baby shower. With the theme being owls & other woodland creatures, this seemed perfect. I got a cookie cutter of an owl, squirrel and cardinal and pressed the seed mixture into each one. Cut up some straws and stuck them where I wanted to place the twine after they dried. So far so good! I love that this recipe doesn't require me to add a bunch of other ingredients, so making 20 of them doesn't cost a lot, and it's just really easy. Thanks for this recipe!

      This would make a great warm-weather treat, but if winters are cold where you live, it isn't suitable. Birds need fat in winter, lots of calories to keep them warm. Suet, lard, peanut butter, and/or shortening should be the base, and these other ingredients can be added to that.

      I think the birds in my yard will really enjoy these. This mixture is really sticky so I decided to not roll these out. Instead I just flattened it down with the back of a wooden spoon and my hands. I let the layer dry for a few minutes to harden up a little before I attempted to cut them. I used the rim of a drinking glass to cut them into the round shape. I turned them every hour, and after about 5 hours they were dry enough to hang. My birds thank you for this recipe. Made for My 3 Chefs, 2009.
