Or at least that's what all those repeat viewings of Mary Poppins taught us, so we decided to see for ourselves.
What do you get when you combine a toilet paper roll, some peanut butter, and a bunch of bird seed on a cookie sheet?
A completely eco-friendly bird feeder!
Jakey mostly helped by staying out of the way after his initial excitement about this project was dispelled by a teeny tiny glop of peanut butter landing on his finger. But, he did help us go outside and put the feeders up.
We threaded them onto the branches of one of the trees in the back yard, all excited to watch the birds fatten themselves up. Ten minutes later, two of these were entirely denuded of all bird seed... by squirrels, which came back another ten minutes later to finish the job. What should we have done differently?
