For the Birds


These cookies are literally for the birds! I found this great recipe while looking for crafty things to do with birdseed. I wanted to do something fun and a little different for our bird friends.

Here is the link for the recipe: http://blog.imaginechildhood.com/imagine-childhood/2011/02/-barn-stories-bird-cookies.html

I didn't have any fruit on hand at the time to use, so I looked up what vegetables are good and used corn instead of blueberries. The birds didn't take long to figure out these were for them and they seem to like them well enough.
These would be good to make any time of year, and especially in the early spring when they have it the hardest to find food. Many people feed the birds in the winter and stop when spring comes around, but the bugs and plants haven't arrived just yet for them to eat, so they need some extra help then.
