If you are a person who mixes up homemade suet, known by some as “Zick Dough” for the indefatigable Julie Zickefoose, who popularized her own recipe, you might want to know that a new, improved, “Zick Dough” recipe is up on her blog – a recipe that will not cause gout in bluebirds (hopefully).  Seriously.  Go check out her new recipe and make the change for the good of the birds!
