Just take a large pinecone and wrap wire or string around the top,
spread bacon grease onto the cone with a butter knife.
Pour birdseed onto newspaper and roll the cone on the seed.
I also use a spoon to pour it on and pat into the crevices.
You can find different recipes on the internet. My Mom uses bacon grease, peanut butter, oats and corn meal.
Tie the cone to a tree branch.....and wait.....
Bingo...I have a taker!
