Bird Treats in a Jar

Stormy Stewart


A great little addition to a nature loving friends basket.

Great for the birds that stay the winter.

This one is so fun. Not only do the birds get a treat in the winter months but you get a chance to show your decorating skills. A little paint or maybe an old card or magazine can be used to make this gift special
