Suet, as bird feed, is the use of a fat mixed with oats, seeds, cornmeal or raisins to feed birds, especially in winter. Some birds that favor suet are:  woodpeckers, goldfinches, juncos, cardinals, thrushes, jays, chickadees, nuthatches, and wrens. Here's a recipe to use up old bread. 
*****This will make your birds very happy.*******
-Dry bread out for a few hours. 
-Attach a hanger of some kind if you would like to hang from a tree or leave without and put in your favorite suet feeder. (These feeders are the ones that are made of cage like material).
-Spread peanut butter on one side, then push your favorite seeds, nuts, oats, or raisins on it while wet.
-Repeat on the other side.
-Let dry for a little while, then hang out in tree or put in feeder. 
-This is also good to do with pine cones instead of bread. 
"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."--Maya Angelou
