Friendly Bird Feeders
Although the durability and natural look of cedar bird feeders continue to be preferred, the new line of feeders made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic is gaining in popularity. Many of these bird feeders have a lifetime warranty against fading, pealing, cracking, and chipping. They clean up like brand new, even after years of use. And speak of easy cleaning, many of the cedar and recycled plastic feeders we stock have removable perforated steel bottoms. This also allows moisture to pass through and the seed to remain dry.
Made in the USA
Great time to buy a new bird feeder as a Christmas gift. Maybe add a new type of bird feeder for winter. What bird feeder might you want to give to a friend or relative? What kind of bird feeder might you want to add to your backyard? Find out at

Red-bellied on suet
  • 2 cups lard (available at any grocery store) May substitute shortening
  • 1 cup peanut butter (you can also add crushed peanuts)
  • 3 cups wild bird feed. (black oil sunflower seed or hulled sunflower seeds work well).
  • Optional - dice up small bits of fruit and add to the mixture.

Combine lard and peanut butter and melt on low heat. (young children should be supervised) Once completely melted stir in bird feed and crushed peanuts. Pour mixture into ice-cube trays and freeze for 2 hours. (may use a lager plastic container if desired) Remove from ice-cube trays and place in a suet feeder. You can also place suet cubes on a platform bird feeder. Try using a piece of mesh onion sack filled with the suet cubes and hang it up. Lay 6" pieces of string in each section of the ice cube tray before pouring mixer into it then use the string to hang suet cubes.
