for the birds


the kiddos and i made sweet bird treats today.






the recipe was halved and honey replaced corn syrup. we had a hard time getting the "cookies" out so we left the cutters on while they warmed in the oven, then placed them in the freezer for ease of removal.

three-year-old bubby also took photos of the bird treats with his camera, which i thought was super cute. then we watched beepers, tweeters and peckers (lol!) and did bird dances. fun day.=)

    jane, i didn't make these for my birds yet. there aren't many trees around so i just sprinkle the seeds on the lawn.

    lisa, they had a lot of fun mixing (and trying to taste) the batter!=)

    veganlisa, the kids have birds hanging out in their yard all day, waiting for bread crusts. i think they'll enjoy these snacks more.=)

  17. So cute! I totally want to make these and dangle them outside my windows so Pixi can be entertained by the birdies! Also, HI!!! I'm catching up on everyone's blogs again after taking a blog hiatus all winter :)

  18. clint, i was inspired by another blogger.=)

    heidi, we watch the birdies every time i'm there, the kids, me, and oscar the cat. i wish i knew what kind they were. i refer to them as the black ones and the red ones. hehe.

    nikki! so happy you're here! i imagine pixi would be very entertained, but if she's anything like biggles was in her youth, she'll want to go out and catch 'em!
