Peanut Butter is an excellent source of fat, protein, and other nutrients for birds. While there are a few myths about birds and peanut butter, no evidence has supported that birds cannot eat peanut butter. In fact, there are many manufacturers who make feeders especially for feeding peanut butter mixed with seed and grains to birds!

How to Make Your Own Peanut Butter Bird Feeder
You can also very easily make your own pine cone peanut butter bird feeder to hang from trees. This is a very fun project to do with kids!
1 large pine cone
1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 cup of small bird seed
1 10 inch piece of yarn
With a knife, spoon, or spatula (depending on what age of kids you may be working with), carefully spread the peanut butter along the pine cone. It is okay to be generous with the peanut butter, as the more peanut butter you use, the better the bird seed will stick to it.
Once Your pine cone is covered in peanut butter, the next step is to roll the pine cone in the bird seed, covering it as much as possible.
Next, we’ll attach the piece of yarn at the top to use for hanging your new peanut butter bird feeder. To do this, all you need to do is tie a knot around the ends.
