It's getting to be that time of year. Cold, snowy and just a difficult time for our fine feathered friends outside. I imagine it's hard for a bird to find food during winter with no plants blooming and no worms spending much time on the surface of the ground. Having snow on the ground would make it even harder. This is why I always keep my bird feeders full during cold weather. When I have time, I even make little bird cakes to hang on the trees. They love them and the fat they are made with helps keep the birds plump and well insulated from the cold. I have four recipes that I like to use to make my bird cakes. They are all easy and pretty quick to make. Making them is a great family activity, perfect for the holidays.
