~ in the winter months, some squirrels and black-capped chickadees will follow folk walking along the nature trails, in hopes of bird seed and nuts; this yuletide, celebrate and honour nature and the smaller creatures by sharing sunflower seeds, bread and/or peanuts with the wildlife in your area ~

bird feeders can be made from collected pine cones, dipped in honey or covered with peanut butter, and then rolled in bird seed; hang these on the trees with green, red and golden string

fresh popcorn can be used both as a decoration and food for the birds; either string popcorn with a needle and thread, and drape upon the trees outside, or alternatively, hang popcorn balls made with honey as bird feeders
