  • Birds like butter

    I was cooking some Haddock on the grill last night (just slap it on some tinfoil over the grill that has a few slabs of butter on it).

    I go inside for 5 minutes and come back to see a Seagull and a black Crow fighting over a stick of butter and waddling off from the pavement with a trail of ripped butter wrappers. They had to of ate that entire stick of butter in a matter of seconds (it was nearly rock solid as I took it out of the freezer only an hour earlier).

    Ha - How strange. I would never guess that birds would just eat gobs of butter. At least they didn't get your fish!

          They love fat. I've laid out the trimmed off portions of solid fat from steaks and roasts and such and had the stellar jay's divebombing each other to get a share, especially in winter. Can't believe they didn't grab the fish as well!

                My dog's favorite food is butter. The first month I had him he managed to steal at least two sticks of butter per week until I figured out how diligent I needed to be

                When I was a kid, my grandma would make lard cupcakes for the birds in the winter. It was rendered lard, peanut butter, and bird seed that would get poured in to muffin tins until they hardened. Then we we tie them to all the trees on the property. The birds loved them!

                  I don't know if they sell them in the states but in The Netherlands I would buy suet balls for the birds in the winter. Basically seeds packed in suet, which the birds would demolish in no time.

                    When I lived in the UK, we used to take the dripping from roast meats, soak bread in it and then through it outside for the birds in the winter.

                      Our parrot loves butter. We can't leave it sitting out in the kitchen because he'll somehow find a way to get to it.

                        Yup! I had to laugh when I went to my vegetarian parents' house and found a big slab of suet and birdseed in their fridge.

                        On a similar topic, I found one of my cats in the garbage can yesterday, where he was eating old solidified bacon grease. Yum?
