Peanut Butter Feeder

Here’s a great homemade birdfeeder that would be easy to make for Christmas gifts. I got this one a few years ago from my Dad. He simply used a drill with a auger bit or a regular spade bit to drill holes in a small log. I fill the holes with peanut butter, but you could also fill the holes with a homemade suet mixture.

The Chickadees and Nuthatches love Peanut Butter. Boreal Chickadees also like Peanut Butter, and three years ago the Yellow-rumped Warbler, that over wintered in my backyard, was a regular customer at the Peanut Butter feeder. There are no perches on the log, but the Peanut Butter is such a treat for the birds that they’ll find a way to hang onto the rough bark of the log.
