Bread Bird Feeders
Come the winter months, many of our fine feathered friends are going to need a little help finding enough food to stay alive. And since we are
living on the lands that once provided them with this life-saving food, it only seems fair that we provide the help by making birdfeeders for them to use. One of the easiest, cheapest and most environmentally sound
birdfeeders to make is the Bread Feeder. To make these, take pieces of bread or leftover challah, cover both sides with peanut butter and press into a dish of bird seed. You can poke the bread onto a tree limb or
place it atop a pole too narrow for squirrels to climb. Keep a notebook handy to list the different types of birds that come to your feeder. Now would be a good time to purchase a bird guide to help you identify
your feathered visitors.
Once you begin to get birds coming to your feeders, let us know "who's coming to dinner at your place." Reference the subject area as Bird Feeders. We at the
Jewish Nature Center will compile a list of sightings and put together periodic updates based on your input. Check the Front Lines page for these results as well as other information and comments sent in by readers.
