Even though we are in the city, we live right in the midst of Eden Park which is filled with wildlife, so by default our little yard is a squirrel, bird, snake (ewww) raccoon, and sometimes deer haven. Really, you'd think we live in the middle of the forest. Ru and I have been talking about all of our fun outdoor projects this spring and this year she is actually old enough to understand and participate in helping make them happen. I've been wanting to hang a bird feeder from our big tree for some time now and thought today was the perfect day. I was totally winging it when it came to the bird food and hope they'll like it. I'm sure the squirrels will at least! Here's what we used (because it was all we had in the pantry:) 

1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup quinoa
1/2 steel cut oats
1/4 cup dried cranberries
spoon full of peanut butter

mixed it all up in a mixing bowl and poured into feeder. Viola! I'll report back as to whether or not they eat it :)


Thank you for coming by and taking the time to comment. Have a wonderful day!
