I like feeding the birds in the winter and I just realized that i can used the giant can of grease that I pour into from making hubs food for bird cakes. I mix fat (usually lard, but I'm not paying for that now...freezer fat it is) with some seed and throw in any old nuts or cornmeal and press them hard into muffin tins. I freeze them then poke a stick through, thread in some hemp, make a loop and knot it them off into the tree branches they go. Yes, I know the squirrels have a go, but it is a free for all.
anyone else do this?
