I'd like to talk a little bit about bird seed. If you want to attract song birds to your yard, it's important to get the right bird seed.
There is all kind of seed on the market and I've tried a few different kinds. However, the one that I find the birds love is The National Audubon Society's Signature Harvest Deluxe Wild bird seed. It's really awesome and the birds - Tear. It. Up!
It's a blend of sunflower and safflower seeds. It's great for Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, Chickadees, and Titmice. I usually buy my seed at Lowes. The last bag that I got was "Garden Treasures" because they were out of the National Audubon bag. The Garden Treasures was okay and the birds did like it. But, I just bought a new bag of the National Audubon and the birds are flocking to my yard!
I'm not kidding! My husband made fun of me when I told him this....he said..."I'm sure the birds know the difference. (And he giggled)" But after watching them, he said "I think they do like this seed better." He's so cute when he agrees with me!
Therefore, I highly recommend the National Audubon Society's Signature Harvest Deluxe Wild bird seed! Please feel free to leave me comments and let me know what bird seed you are using and how you like it!
