When it is cold outside, I love to give the birds an extra treat: Peanut Butter Seed Rolls. I take a toilet paper roll (I save them throughout Summer), spread some peanut butter all over the roll, roll it around in bird seeds, and hang it on a tree branch. The birds get wind of the seed roll very quick, sit on a tree twig close by, and have some lunch/dinner. I can almost hear them saying: “Hmmm, peanut butter & seeds are sooo tasty!”
The peanut butter keeps the birds warm in those cold Winter nights. A full tummy and being a puffed up ball of feathers makes them feel cozy.
