Be sure not to throw those toilet paper rolls away! You could even cut paper towel rolls in half, cover them in peanut butter, roll them in bird seed and hang. Everyone in the family will enjoy looking out of the window to watch the birds eat.

    Is the peanut butter that you suggest, salt free? Salt is toxic to gardens birds. Their bodies are unable to process it, and it affects their nervous systems. Birds become very thirsty and dehydrated when they ingest salt, meaning they would drink more, potentially exacerbating the problem. They would also suffer kidney dysfunction . It would be good to add this information. We all want to help our feathered friends. We, in the UK, have a product called Flutterbutter which i purchase from www.livingwith birds.com. salt free. Thanks. Sheila.

      Sheila thank you so much for this valuable information. I never knew this before, and I'm sure many other people don't. I will never use peanut butter with salt again in a project like this.
