When I was a child, I loved watching the birds in the winter from out my window. It was fun to see how they interact when the world is so cold outside. One way to attract birds for watching (as well as doing something kind for them) is to make some bird feeder treats for them to snack on while food is scarce. If you place treats on a porch or near a window, you can also get a good view of the birds as well. Here are 10 DIY Bird Feeder Treats for you to make yourself or with you children.
