Feeding our fine-feathered friends!
Read the blog on what birds like what kinds of foods if you are interested in attracting certain types of birds. I will be posting the brands/types that I have had success with here.
Ratings go 1 :(…………….5 :)!
Lyric makes a great shelled peanuts product that will attract all kind of nut-lovers. The Tufted Titmouse, Black-capped Chickadees, Red and White-breasted Nuthatches, all woodpeckers and Bluejays are fans. My Cardinals will also splurge once in a while. Note-squirrels are also fans….so…..
Lyric also makes a Finch Small Songbird mix that I call fancy finch food in my feeding birds blog. If you are looking to see the colors and hear the songs of Goldfinches, Purple and House Finches, get this food! My Chickadees, Juncos and House Sparrows also like it. If you do not use a special Nyjer feeder, Mourning Doves and Cardinals will also stop by for a bite.
How about bird feeders?
This Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone Wild Bird Feeder did not fare so well. You can get it online for about $22.00-I paid more at my local store. It lasted 4 days before my squirrels broke the springs on the side so that the birds cannot access the nuts inside now. I bought one before that did last longer but too risky.
