Biscuit Bombs for the Birds in Winter!comments (0) December 14th, 2010 in gallery
Feed the Birds Cake!
Well...not really cake, but from the way the birds have been attacking these feeders, it might as well be! They must think they have died and gone to Heaven when they stumble upon our little star magnolia laden with biscuit bombs. What are biscuit bombs? Simple. They are leftover (homemade!) biscuits that are starting to get a little stale, whipped up with a little peanut butter and birdseed. Yes, I know the concept is not new, but it is certainly still as joyfully fun as ever!
I used plasticware from the recycling bin to hold them and collect the extra birdseed. We do it like 2nd graders do glitter. Sprinkle on a massive amount, shake it off, and keep going until you can't see any peanut butter. That's what makes a delightful surprise for the birdies when they get through the seed and realize - Hallelujah! - there is peanut butter! Well...I guess I am just assuming they feel this way...
We didn't quite cover all the peanut butter, but good enough is the recent standard - have you heard? I wrap them in raffia after the peanut butter, but before the seed indoors to make it a little less messy. Then tie the string to the tree and it is all compostable in the spring if there is anything left. The birds don't like to leave much however...
They store easily outside in the winter. Bombs Away Birdies!
