What to feed wild birds is not always easy for attracting birds we want to watch in our backyards.
Suet has always attracted the wild birds I am interested in watching; Woodpeckers (many varieties), Chickadees, Nuthatches, Bluejays.
Yes, it will draw Starlings and Blackbirds too, so move your suet feeder between 20 to 30 feet away from your other feeders and your song birds will not be, so disturbed.
For further help in solving the problem of unwanted guests try this page Suet Bird Feeders.
And if you are not sure what suet is, read about it at Suet Bird Food.
I discovered an interesting blog page that had some nice looking bird suet recipes.
I must mention that they listed a page from my website Suet Bird Food as a source for what bird suet is and how to make it.
I am delighted that they listed my website as a resource!
I got the following ideas from "BB's Blog":
BB mentioned that she received a request for her homemade suet recipe.
Like myself she does not follow any particular recipe.
She searched the internet for ideas and proportions.
She was also trying to avoid having to go to the store to make a purchase.
She used what was on hand.
BB said it was a little sticky but that the birds loved it anyway.
Wild birds will love mealworms added to your homemade suet.
This article was taken with some of my own additions and omissions from BB’s Blog. Hope you have enjoyed these bird suet recipes!
