Peanut Butter log for the Birds

Another fun thing we did this year was make a peanut butter log for the birds. Bill drilled a bunch of half inch holes in a small log (about Chimminea size) and I filled it with chunky peanut butter from the Dollar General Store - their's was cheap and had big chunks of peanuts. The birds love it! I stuffed each hole with peanut butter and even smeared it around the holes too. As you can see, the little woodpeckers especially like it but so do the Titmise, Wrens, Nuthatches, Junkos and others.

I think the Blue Birds would eat from it too if we put on some little perches. Bill is planning to add them as soon as he finds time.
