Log Feeder for Peanut Butter Suet
Log or branch 7" to 14" long
One stick of 1/4" dowel rod
Sturdy wire or jute for hanging
Medium size eye bolt
Cut a piece of a log to be somewhere between 7" and 14" in length,
depending on the number of holes you want to fill with suet. (The one in
the picture above is 7" long with a total of 8 holes). The thickness of
the log above is 4" - that can also vary. It will be easier to use a
straight piece of log or branch for this feeder.
Drill holes about 1" in diameter and about 3/4 of an inch deep. In a 7"
log, drill 2 holes (see picture) on all 4 sides.
Use a quarter inch dowel rod for the perches. Drill small holes below
the larger holes and insert the 1/4" dowels into these holes. Glue in
place with wood glue.
Screw a medium or large size eye bolt into the top end of the log. Using
about a 10" piece of wire or jute, make a looped hanger through the eye
bolt for hanging.
Stuff the holes with the peanut butter suet from the recipe below.
