Suet is a calorie-rich food source which provides much-needed nutrition for wild birds, especially during times of high energy demand such as spring and fall migration, and nesting season. During the harsh winter months these extra calories will help birds survive the frigid weather. Suet-loving birds include cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, jays, bluebirds and woodpeckers. Here in the desert our suet feeders attract Bewick's Wrens, Verdins, House Finches and Northern Mockingbirds.
The wood for these feeders comes from Honey Mesquite trees (Prosopis glandulosa) growing wild on our property. Mesquite wood is ruggedly beautiful, durable, and a fast-growing renewable resource. We leave the rough, reddish bark on so the birds will have a natural perch. There are 7 x 1" holes drilled randomly on all sides of the feeder. A heavy duty eyelet at the top makes the feeder easy to hang. This feeder measures 10.5" long by 2.5" diameter.
Stores that sell wild bird food also sell suet cakes, which can be cut into cubes and pressed into the feeder's openings. You can also find lots of recipes for home made suet online and in bird books. Suet is easy to make and it's fun to customize the ingredients. In a recent batch of home made suet we included bread crusts, trail mix, crunchy peanut butter, and granola cereal crumbs.
Be sure to place your feeder where you can watch and enjoy your colorful guests!
