And the Winner is…Bark Butter!

I freely and without apology confess that I am obsessed with my backyard birds.  I also readily admit that a fair bit of our budget goes toward feeding them.  Now I like offering a variety of food choices, but if I had to pick one that I simply must have it is without a doubt “Birdacious Bark Butter.”  They go crazy for this stuff!  Every month I trek over to our local Wild Birds Unlimited and stock up with a fresh supply.

Let me give you a photo sampling of some of the regulars who stop in to partake of this nutritious feast which is a mixture of peanuts, corn, suet and soy oil.

Red-bellied Woodpecker
Pine Warbler (male)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet

…humor me with a few more….

Yellow-rumped Warbler (female)
Blue jay
Eastern Bluebird and Pine Warbler (female)

By the way…the feeder is my husband’s handiwork.  He drilled holes in a Bradford Pear log to hold the bark butter and then added perches.  Cool, eh?
