Treat Sticks
Submitted by Jenny and Her Bird Popcorn

Untreated fruit tree twigs (or lollipop sticks)
2 cups combined seeds
chopped roasted salt free nuts
pellets, raisins
other dried fruit

Disinfect tree twigs by placing in a 150 C or 300 F oven for 30 minutes. Mix dry ingredients together then mix in the egg. Press the mixture onto the twigs/sticks (very messy). Bake in the oven at 200 degrees C  or 400 F for 20-30 minutes until toasted. Brush the honey over the treat sticks and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes. Allow to cool. Serve and watch your birds demolish all your hard work with relish!!! Remove leftovers and scraps after 3 hours.
