Ravens Gardens
I have been doing this project for years with few differences. I use very large pinecones i find up high in the mountains, I spend a day hiking and searching,then i spread peanut butter all over them and push them around in bird seed until they are covered. i use red ribbons to hang them and put several in all my trees, the birds love them!!
