Homemade Bird Brick

Homemade Bird Brick

1 cup peanut butter (crunchy is best)
1 ½  cups oatmeal (raw uncooked oats)
2 cups bird seed
½ cup water

Directions: In a large bowl combine peanut butter, oatmeal and water.  Microwave for 3-5 minutes.  The mixture will be very thick.  Add in the bird seed and stir to fully combine.  Pour ½  into a pie pan, or a medium square or round glass dish & press it down.  Add the remaining ½ and press it down to form a solid mold.  Put in the refrigerator to cool.  Once it has hardened it is ready to be remove from the pan or dish.  Wrap and tie a string around it and then tie it from a branch.  You can place it on something outside like a deck railing, but then you run the chance of other creatures getting it.  This recipe makes a very large brick, so if you want a medium or small brick just cut the recipe in half.  This also is much cheaper than buying a bird brick from the store, just get super cheap peanut butter, the cheapest oats you can find and the 2.5 lb bird seed bag I found was only about $4 at walmart.
