We bought a suet cake to give the birds some protein and fat, but the store didn't have a feeder, so I threw one together with a wire coat hanger and some picture wire...seems to be holding up, even with The Assault of the Starving Starlings!
We've had all kinds of birds, here and on our platform feeder and finch feeders. Yesterday when I made squash soup, I put the seeds and pith of the squash out on the table, and it was gone in minutes!
Poor hungry mites...
Our friend Toni Kelly shared her recipe for home made suet cakes--we'll try that next: http://www.goerieblogs.com/other/presqueislenaturally/2009/12/easy-suet-mix.html
