Cooking For Wildlife : Birds

Homemade Bark Batter

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup flour
2 cups cornmeal
Combine all ingredients until well-mixed. I used my hands. Feel free to add some sunflower seeds, nuts, dried fruits, anything your birds might like!
There are many ways to serve this treat! We have a board attached to a pole, but you can also smear it right onto the tops of your bird feeders, or even onto the branches of a tree or bush. Or, add chunks of it to a tray feeder. The options are endless

  1. thank you for this recipe!

    we are having an awful time, with squirrels knocking down every bird feeder we put up. grrrr.... so we are just scattering seed on the snow.

    would love to give birds something like your recipe. to help them add some fat, when they need it most. perhaps on a branch..... or on the old real Christmas tree, we have out there, for them to take shelter in....

    anyway, thank you for an idea!!!!!!!!!
