I am going to give that a try Jeanne. My grand daughter love to do stuff for the birds. It will be a good project for us emoticon

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Sorry, I only use the hanging suet as well. I have to keep all my feeders away from areas the dogs can get to. They will eat anything that falls on the ground.

I use the hanging kind as well for Suet. We get cats in our yard, so on the ground isn't a good idea. Here's a no melt recipe for Suet.

No Melt, All Season, Peanut Butter, Suet Recipe

by D'Anne Franks
(Brookesmith, Texas, USA)

1 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 cups (quick cook) oats
2 cups cornmeal
1 cup lard (no substitutions)
1 cup white flour

Melt the lard and peanut butter, and then stir in the remaining ingredients.
Pour the mixture into square freezer containers about 1-1/2 inches thick.
Allow it to cool, then cut it into squares and store them in the freezer.

I never did put it on the ground when I used it. I had special feeders that hung up. Here it melts in the sun so I can no longer offer it. Sorry I have no great helpful hints :)

Does anyone provide suet for your ground feeding wild birds?

It just dawned on me this morning as I refilled the feeders and suet cage, that I only provide suet for the perching and climbing wild birds. I don't have any one the ground for the ground feeders/scratchers.

If you do, how do you do set it out for them without a dog, squirrel, or raccoon getting into it?


Blessings,
Heidi
