Homemade birdseed - dry your berries for songbirds

Garden Life
You have berries like elder, viburnum, barberry, hawthorn or rowan in your garden and you do not know what to do with them? Why not keep them for the songbirds?
Resident birds which do not migrate will be happy about well-filled bird feeders in your garden. 
Remember to cut off the berry bunches in time and dry them upside-down at a dry and dark place with good ventilation. 

During winter time you can hang out the complete bunch or you can remove the dried berries and put them directly into a bird feeder. 

You also can add some unsalted nuts like hazelnuts or peanuts.
