  1. Suet blocks

    you can make many variatys of home made you can use any kind of fats shortning or lard or even bacon juices. and in hot weather you can skip the fats that melt and use a mix of peanut butter and corn syrup and mix in mixed bird seed or Hen scratch and most any kind of nuts you can use old cereal or bread crumbs or even cooked rice or wheat or oats in the suet mix you can make up large amounts and keep it in the freezer till you need it another thing is to take pine cones and cover them with the suet mix and hang them from a limb or a hook or drill holes in a branch and stuff the holes with suet mix. and hang the stuffed branch you can make the suet mix thick and doughy and just stuff the mix into a cage or save the plastic trays from the store suet and refill them with your different mixes. if you buy the plastic trays of berrys and save the bottom of the tray to make suet in it

  12. What birds migrate South in January

    i live in the four corners close to where the states of Colorado Utah New Mexico and Arizona my backyard is right at 7000 foot elevation foothills just below the mountains. my story is just the opposite with only a few light snow storms this winter and no snow left on the ground. it has been in the Teens at night but in the 40's to low 50's daytime. the warmest winter i have ever seen here. there are lots of birds that usually migrate in the fall still here such as blackbirds and robins and the water is not frozen over and a lots more ducks and geese and other waterbirds hanging around and lots of juncos and evening grosbeaks and stellar jays and chickadees and finches and towhees all eating together at my feeders. the christmas bird count was at Pastorius resevior near Durango Colorado and it had one of the highest number of species and also one of the highest total number of birds.
