This is an outdoor hint which many of you already know but many have forgotten. You can do this with your grandchildren. They will enjoy it and it will remind them that our feathered friends need our care, especially in winter.
Take day old bagels, split. Place on cookie sheets, dry in 350 degree oven for approximately 2-3 minutes. Spread with ordinary smooth peanut butter, then dip in wild bird seed. Loop red yarn, or raffia or twine around them to tie on the branches of a tree or evergreen in your yard. It will bring color to your yard not only by the colorful red yarn but by the birds flocking to your yard.
