What’s Up? – Rain and Suet Cakes
Rain and Suet Cakes
After so many days without rain, we finally had the rain that so much for…and more! We’ve had rain for four days in a row and if you see the weather forecast is calling for some more rainy days ahead. The temperature is always over 80º F , during the day.
I’ve been trying a new brand of mix seeds for birds from Sam’s Club. They gave me 50 lbs. for trial. The birds eat them but are picking only what they like and attracts too many blackbirds. These, are destroying the peace and tranquility of my backyard, and making a mess everyday! Once I finish the new mix I’m testing, I’ll return to feeding my birds with the previous mix.
I’ve made a change on the feeding department. Instead of buying the suet from the store, I’ve opted for making my own. It works pretty well. It takes me only about 20 minutes to make 10 suet cakes (See photo).
There are more birds visiting my backyard this year, compared to last year’s. However, there’s less variety of species.
