Soon it will be hard for birds to find things to eat or maybe you are a birdwatcher and like to leave out treats for your feathered friends? When my daughter was younger, we had a tradition of making peanut butter, bird seed bagels and tying them to one of our trees with red ribbons around Christmas time! Today I came across a recipe for making a simple homemade bird feeder. If you have kids or grandkids this might make a neat Saturday afternoon project. I found the recipe on a very neat website called The Rustic Lodge Lifestyle.
