Mel shares a Bluebird Suet Recipe with Simon Rose on the Morning Meeting

Thanks to everyone who called in when I was on Simon Rose’s Show on 1400AM/98.9FM in Columbia, MO on Thursday 1/24 from 9:15am to 10am.

As stated on the show, mealworms are the #1 supplement food to offer bluebirds. Songbird Station has live mealworms grown in Central Missouri at great prices. The live mealworms come in 100 in a cup, 1000 in a bag, and 5000 in a bag. Also, several sizes of dried mealworms are also available (coat with olive oil before feeding).

We also discussed a nugget bluebird treat Songbird Station sells. I promised to share a recipe that is a great homemade suet and bluebird supplement when crumbled. The recipe will not save you any money but can be fun to do with children. My favorite and the most proven recipe is the No-Melt Peanut Butter Suet created by Martha Sargent.

Bluebird Suet Recipe

1 C. Crunchy Peanut Butter 2 C. Quick oats
2 C. Cornmeal 1 C. Lard (no substitutions)
1 C. White Flour 1/3 C. Cugar

Melt lard and peanut butter, then stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into square freezer containers about 1/5 inches thick. Cut to size and seperate blocks with wax paper and store inthe freezer.


It is so important to us to encourage everyone to see the beauty and wonder of God’s world.
