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.
How can I attract specific birds and not attract others (e.g. starlings, grackles and cowbirds)?
Make sure that you have the right bird food to attract specific birds. Sunflower is a great seed that many species love. Also specialty blends, such as Wagner’s Cardinal Blend or Finches Supreme, will attract these specific birds. Birdseed with less milo and corn won’t attract as many cowbirds, grackles and starlings if you would rather not see these birds.
How do I stop squirrels from eating all of my birdseed?
Squirrels are a common problem at bird feeders. There are now a number of feeder styles designed to prevent squirrels from reaching the seed. Additionally, there are two seeds that squirrels do not like — safflower and nyjer seed. An optional method is to supply the squirrels with their own supply of food away from the bird feeder area. Cracked corn works nicely.
Where and how should I store my bird seed after I bring it home?
Store your bird seed elevated on a shelf in a cool, dry location. Make sure that it is closed or sealed tightly in original package or in a storage container. It is important that the storage location has good air circulation and is away from direct sunlight or heat source. You should avoid storing your bird seed on a cement floor, since moisture from the floor can be transferred to the seed.

These seeds were a great success with my wild birds, a family of blue jays, many sparrows, doves, etc. I have bird feeders and bird baths, live in Miami, Florida where it can get very hot.
Out of a 10 lb. bag, the birds get roughly one pound of seeds and the squirrels get the other 9 pounds! We have the happiest and fattest squirrels in our neighborhood! Yes, I know… We need a squirrel proof bird feeder, but we’ve tried numerous models, all of which the squirrels have found a way to access!

This seed has increased the variety of birds coming to my bird feeders. I enjoy watching the birds from my patio each night. I highly recommend buying this seed for your bird watching enjoyment.

I enjoy watching the birds at my bird feeder and they do like the wagners bird seed that I purchase for them. The seeds are easy to pour into the different feeders and I try to keep seed in each one. Good product for the birds.
Great product, the birds keep coming back for more. It’s a bit more expensive than other options, but it is a higher quality mix. Really convenient to have this shipped vs picking up at a store.
I tried using the fancy block honey seeds and no birds wanted anything to do with it ? So I am getting my order shipped out every 2 months. I’ll make adjustments if I run out sooner than expected ?
I have a cute little apartment bird feeder that needs to be refilled twice a day because of these crazy but cute finches. They seem to like it so 10/10
My wild birds love this wild bird food. This bird food, along with mixed in cracked corn (from another company), have brought a flock of birds to my yard instead of my original half a dozen birds or so that I was feeding before.I am also now getting doves (lots of them too) in the backyard that I never had before.Honestly, I did not intend to feed that many birds, ouch! It gets expensive, but hey the birds love it.

The birds seem to like it. I think that they do not have to work hard to break the food down like they may have to do with sunflower seeds, for instance.
The seed is so popular with my little sparrows….it is gone every 3 days after filling the feeder. That makes me happy…and I think the amount for the price is a good value,
