Making bird seed ornaments are a simply and fun craft for children to do!
What you will need:
- Any kind of Bird Seed
- Peanut butter
- Paper and scissors
How to make your Ornament:
- Cut out a shape with your scissors and your paper (such as a heart) and also tie a string to the top of your shape so that you can hang your ornament when it’s finished.
- Next take your shape and spread peanut butter all over one side of your shape.
- Then take the side with the peanut butter and smash it into a plate of bird seed until there is bird seed covering the entire peanut butter surface.
When you are finished you can hang your ornament outside on a tree or a bush and watch the birds enjoy their treat! Easy as that!
If you’re like me then you love to put up bird houses in your yard, and see all the different birds that come to stay. However, with the traditional bird houses you can only watch the little birds fly in and out of it. We rarely get to see what happens inside the bird house. The good news is that Perky Pet has fixed that problem for us avid bird watchers!
With the Perky Pet Wild Bird Window Feeder, bird watching has been made easy. This feeder has a one cup capacity that can hold any type of seed or mix. It also has a crystal clear design so we can unravel the mysteries of what happens in a bird house. It’s super easy to clean and it has a window mount so you can watch from any window of your choice! I recommend checking this bird house out and enjoying watching those birds.

Have you ever gotten your ATV in a place that you’re not quite sure how to get out of? Then this could be of some help. There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of the woods, tracking for the “sweet spot”, and all of a sudden, you’re up to your axles in mud. Well, if you have a winch like the Grip Tools 3,000 lb. 12 volt electric ATV winch from Rural King Supply, then all of your worries will be a thing of the past. You can also use it to get that perfect kill out of a precarious location.
Here are some tips on how to winch properly…
- Inspect your cable for frays or kinks before going on your trip.
- Always wear gloves while winching.
- Make sure you have anchor points (usually tow hooks) front and rear of your rig.
- Make your you have a tree strap, some ‘D’ shackles of size, short length of 3/8 chain and a good pulley block rated at twice the capacity of the winch.
- If you are winching another rig out you should anchor your rig to something like another rig , or a tree or a special made winch anchor.
- Put a heavy coat, towel or blanket over the cable while winching.
- After the trip, or when you put on a new cable, or when you buy a new winch you will need to rewind the cable.
- Let out the cable while on flat ground and run it to an anchor point.
- Winch your rig to that anchor point making sure the are no gaps between the cable as it winds up.
- Always use a tree strap to get an anchor to a tree and not your cable. Cable cut into the tree and will kill it in the long run.
- The heavy blanket or what ever you use on the cable while winching helps the cable to go toward the ground instead of up where it could hurt or kill someone.
- Remember winching can be dangerous.
Suet is a good choice for attracting insect-eating birds. Suet can be purchased as processed cake that includes seeds, berries, and other ingredients like this one, from St. Alban’s Bay, available at Rural King. Suet is a high energy formulation of animal fat and other ingredients to attract insect eating birds, which, in return, help keep down the insect population in your yard. It is also a quick source of heat and energy for birds, who’s metabolisms are set on fast forward. It traditionally has been used as a good substitute for the insects that birds usually feed upon but are not plentiful in cold weather. Suet can be presented all year long. Offering suet in a wire cage or suet log is a low-maintenance bird feeder. You refill only once every week or so, you never need to scrub the feeder, and you can leave it in your yard year round. Presenting suet in your backyard will also attract a greater variety of birds for your enjoyment.
