Still need to figure out what the things are called that you blow or catch in the wind
Ok they ate just called windmills

I boil together one cup of sugar and one cup of water for about 5 minutes, then mix with 8 onz of melted lard.When cool I add breadcrumbs, flour, bird seed, boiled rice and scraps until the mixture is very stiff. Then form into balls which fit into a feeder. Sparrows in particular love them.This mix makes about 15 balls.

Gandyland Goo Cakes

Melt bag of miniature marshmallows, cup of lard, and small jar of chunky peanut butter over low heat. Stir in about 3 cups black oil sunflowers, and after thoroughly coating the seeds, add another 3 cups, plus fruit or nuts if desired. Press into molds and put in freezer for a couple of hours until they set firmly.

Attracts many types of birds!

We have red-bellied woodpeckers, downy woodpeckers, nuthatches, brown creeper, ruby-crowned kinglets, chickadees, cardinals, pine siskens and many other birds visiting this feeder just outside the window.

could gelitaine be a good binder - knox

natural liquid protein for their glue -

been looking at different ways to bind the bird food together

i have done lard which was recomneded although they stick together they look not as nice as i wanted.

i have been advised that adding bread crumbs and using suet could help and the longer the mix is left out in the air the harder it will be.
