Peanut butter

About three weeks ago, two friends from The Netherlands brought us a present: a bird feeder giving place to a jar of peanut butter. It seemed like a great idea. The sticky brown stuff is not only tasty, but fat and rich in calories, too. A good addition to the winter diet of our feathered friends. Well, that's what we thought.

The birds were less enthusiastic. Every now and then, a bird sat in front of the jar to take a look. But not a single one of them dared to try the strange food.

We had nearly lost all hope, when, a few days ago, I saw a Nuthatch pecking at the peanut butter. And the next day, this pioneer got company of a Great Tit. Now, the two gourmets drop by every day for their daily ration of sticky calories. So there's hope, after all.
