Our bird tree

In the spirit of trying to instill the "giving" part of Christmas into the oldest we made a tree for the birds this year. Most of the decorations for the tree were edible; dried apples, orange slices and pinecones rolled in peanut butter and bird seed. After Christmas we moved to tree outside and re-decorated it.

It got knocked over during a storm the night before last but we fixed it up again. So far it's being enjoyed by mostly house sparrows but we have some woodpeckers coming by for the suet and some juncos eating spilled seed.

I'm hoping to make more decorations for it on days we are snowed in this winter so all of us can enjoy it in the coming months.
