And The Winner Is….

I tend to put out quite a banquet for my backyard birds, but I’m pretty sure if I had them vote for their favorite food the winner would be Bark Butter.

This suety-spread (available at Wild Birds Unlimited) attracts a huge variety of birds.

This afternoon, I put some on a branch that I have attached to my deck and then waited to see who showed up.  Here’s a handful that stopped by to feast.

Red-bellied Woodpecker

Brown Thrasher

Eastern Bluebird (female)

Ruby-crowned Kinglet

Downy Woodpecker (male)

And here’s another handful.

Northern Mockingbird

Eastern Bluebird (male)

Pine Warbler

Downy Woodpecker (female)

Northern Cardinal

So, if you want to attract more birds to your backyard –
1) Find yourself a beautiful dead branch and bungee cord it to your deck… then…
2) Get yourself some Bark Butter (Here’s the link!) and spread it on the branch.
Then sit back and enjoy the show!

    A wonderful mix of species! Bark butter is definitely my bird’s favorite too! If I run out, my pair of Hairy woodpeckers hang on the tree where I put it and call to me loudly over and over. Then they sit and watch me put more out from just a couple feet away.

    What does the bark butter consist of, Kathy? We’d have to try and make our own here.

    Top shots Kathie! You capture the whole bird so beautifully, and how wonderful to have so many turn up each day. That bark butter must be something awful nice!
