Paper Bag Lunch for birds

Easy, easy easy. Fill a paper brown lunch bag with shredded paper (from your shredder or sold at the dollar store as filling for gift baskets), nuts, pellets, dried pasta, dried fruit, etc. Tie the bag with a piece of ribbon or Paulie rope, hang in cage! For Pepper, my red girl, who is a more hard core forager, I put a bag inside a bag so she has 2 layers to go through. For Ollie, who is lazy and gives up quickly, I cut slits in the bag so he can see that there is something good inside (this is a good idea to do with birds who are new to foraging, too). Here are some pics of the finished product (click to enlarge):
