Birdz Cookies

AMCR 1-22-16-9982The weather finally turned cold enough last week to warrant baking the Birdz Cookies, which have gone through several iterations over time. I have managed to find a way to cut down on the sugar content and increase the peanut butter, which suits the Crows just fine.

I was quite pleased that the Crows went for the cookies first, saving the hot dogs and peanuts for later. So I guess baking cookies is the way to a Crow’s heart…

There were a few White-Throated Sparrows too. It still amuses me that they have chosen Millennium Park for a winter habitat, but I suspect they picked up lots of tips from the House Sparrows and are able to get enough food and shelter to make a go of it. On this day there was only one individual available for pictures.

I haven’t been out to see the Crows all week but I’m going to visit them today. Very chilly today but we are supposed to have a two-day warming trend.

Until the next post, I leave you with a few more pictures from last Friday. It’s very likely the Crows are paying attention while I’m posting this and salivating in advance.

  1. You’re so good to the birds Lisa. Baking and cooking for them is something I would not do! 🙂 Nice photos! Bundle up, don’t forget!

    • Thanks, H.J.! I will bundle up, although it’s always a bit warmer in Millennium. I wouldn’t bake cookies for birds at all except that they’re city birds so they’re used to eating…people food as much as everything else and they like them so it’s kind of fun. I figure they won’t gain too much weight!
