FOLLOW THESE 4 STEPS:

  1. Use scissors to cut a long piece of string to hang the bird feeder. Use the string to tie a knot around the pine cone near the top (at the stalk end). A pipe cleaner will also work.

  2. Use the butter knife to spread the peanut butter inside the pine cone and around the edges. As well spread a little bit over the plate. 

  3. Hold the pine cone over the plate and sprinkle birdseed over it. Roll the pine cone in any birdseed that has fallen on the plate. 

  4. Pick a place in your backyard that’s safe from predators – at least 3 m off the ground and at the end of a tree branch. Hang your bird feeder and wait for the birds.

****Take your bird feeder down at night so rats or mice don’t get to it. During springtime you won’t get many birds using the feeder as natural food sources will be readily available again.
