It's for the Birds — for Goodness Sake!

Seed ball

It may look like a cheese ball, but this one is for the birds. In the cold winter days when our beautiful winged friends are searching for food, it's fun to put out something they can enjoy.

You can buy commercial suet blocks from your local store to fit into a feeder cage, but it's just as easy to make your own. Suet is rendered animal fat, which holds the suet cake or ball together.  Thespruce.com notes that you can use lard or even bacon grease (to a small extent). I've found that peanut butter works just as well, and may possibly be more nutritional for our feathered friends, for goodness sake!
