Awesome double, Delia! My favourite the Robin, do they really enjoy coconut?................thanks for sharing! Stay safe!
Thanks Nora... it's not coconut in the shell, but suet (or fat). They are very popular with the birds.

A wonderful dual capture, Delia! I have never thought of trying coocnut.
Cheers Tee and thanks.

The birds love these, but that isn't coconut in there. The empty shells have been filled with fat or suet (this one I think is suet with some seeds in it).

One way to re-cycle coconut shells LOL.

A beautiful double caption D and I had no idea that birds like coconut.


I love that golden glow that you have been catching your birds in lately.

Hi KC.... the coconut shells have been filled with fat or suet. I guess someone thought of the idea after eating the original contents, and wild bird food suppliers have run with it. A good way to recycle the shells, isn't it LOL.
