Bird Feeding Fundamentals – When Feeding Wild Birds, There Are 4 Keys To a Successful Program
Provide different types of food to attract more variety of birds. Sunflower is a great seed that many species love. Higher quality mixes attract more birds. Keep feeders full so birds will continue to visit.
Provide a variety of feeders to attract the greatest variety of birds. Use hoppers and tube feeders for Sunflower and mixes. Use Finch feeders for Nyjer and Finch mixes. Platform feeders will accommodate ground feeding birds.
Provide a shallow water source (2 inch-3 inch deep) so birds can bathe and drink. Water also attracts birds that feeding stations alone cannot, such as ones that feed on insects alone.
Place feeders in locations already frequented by birds. Place by shrubs and/or trees to offer protection.
Where should I locate my feeder to attract the most birds?
Make sure that your feeder is close to natural shelter such as trees and shrubs to provide protection for your birds, but be careful not to make it too convenient for squirrels. Also, place it in a location so that you can enjoy watching the activities of your feathered friends.
Should I feed the birds year-round?
Yes, birds need food year-round, so it is best to keep bird feeders full all year. Birds have a high metabolism and need to continually eat. Birds nest from late winter through late summer and during these months there is not an abundance of natural foods, so they need additional food for breeding and raising their young.
What is the best bird food?
Oil Sunflower Seed is one of the best seeds to have in a wild bird food mix. It is popular with a large number of species and is easy to feed in a variety of feeder styles. Wagner’s blends provide a wide selection of seed choices that will attract a largest variety of birds to the backyard feeder. Wagner’s has the mixes that will attract the species you want and will fit any budget.
The Colorful Finch
These colorful songbirds are some of the most popular feeder birds. The bright yellows of the American Goldfinch and rosy reds of the House Finch add a splash of color to your feeder guests. Because of their small beaks, they are masterful at handling tiny seed pieces like those included in Lyric Finch Small Songbird Mix.
The Ingredients Finches Love
Nyjer seed is a favorite of finches but can be quite expensive. Our Finch Small Songbird Mix combines Nyjer seed with other finch favorites: canary and canola seeds, golden millet and sunflower kernels. This mix will attract a variety of finches including American Goldfinches, Common Redpolls, House Finches, Lesser Goldfinches and Purple Finches.
Because the seeds in this mix are quite small, be sure to use a feeder specifically designed to hold Nyjer seed. A tube feeder with very small feeding ports, mesh feeder with tiny mesh holes, or a sock feeder work best. Be sure to protect the seed from the rain and snow as it can cause it to spoil or clump.
