|not the best pic I'll admit I took it through the window...|
Here goes. Take a pine cone and dip it into peanut butter- make sure to get the p. butter deep inside the cone. Next roll/pat the cone in cornmeal and then roll/pat the cone with bird seed. I tied my cone with some raffia prior to dipping so that it would hang on trees/ poles outside. It is a tad smooshy when done but it will freeze up quite nicely when put outdoors.
It's a hit. Woodpeckers love it and chickadees adore it! Not to mention the Red poles and the Gold finches! It is a also a great way for us to watch the birds fight over them from our kitchen window.
