A regular pine cone might be enough to attract birds, but a pine cone bird feeder — one coated with peanut butter — will really draw them in.

You can improvise a great pine cone bird feeder in just a few minutes by spreading peanut butter over a large pine cone and rolling it in bird seed. Tie a string to the cone to hang it from a limb. More feeders will bring more birds, but remember to keep on providing food once you start.
