Corn Toy
Courtesy of The Alaska Bird Club

What you will need:

  • Ear Corn Mazorcas (found in the wild bird food section)
  • Drill press
  • Screw with eye hole at end (or a shish-kabob stick as pictured)

1. Using a drill press carefully drill a hole through the middle of each ear of corn. Please note that this is very messy and the corn has a tendency to break in two.

2. To pop the corn place in a paper bag in the microwave. Not using a paper bag may result in a fire!

3. Use the popcorn setting on the microwave. DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED. Keep an empty pot handy for easy transport of the corn, in the event of a fire.

4. Once the corn stops popping (2 or 3 seconds between pops) carefully remove from the microwave.

5. Let cool.

6. Place screw with eye hole though the hole in the corn and place in your birdís cage.

**Note: The corn can be popped prior to drilling the holes.
