Bird Week (Wednesday)
Winter Treats: Help the children make these winter treats for birds.
- Orange or Grapefruit Cup--Punch four holes near the top of an empty orange or grapefruit rind. Attach it to a tree limb with string. Fill the rind with seeds or nuts.
- Bread Ornament--Cut a slice of stale bread into a circle or other shape with a cookie cutter. Mix food coloring with hardened fat and spread it on both sides of the bread. Make a hole near the top of the shape and tie it to a tree limb with string.
- Suet Bag--Cut a 6-inch square of net from a potato or onion bag. Mix suet with birdseed and place a large spoonful of the mixture in the center of the netting. Bring the corners of the square together and tie with a string. Then fasten the suet bag to a tree branch.
