Keeping your backyard birds well-fed has become a popular hobby in recent years, and the most prevalent way to do so is by offering them seed. A bag of a single type of seed, such as safflower or cracked corn, is a fantastic way to attract select songbirds to your area. Seed blends are another great option for tube, hopper, and platform feeders, and often offer favorite treats for a variety of your feathered friends. Look for blends with low amounts of wheat and millet, as these are filler seed and nutritionally poor for birds, and you can also search for seed without hulls for less waste beneath your feeding station. Peanuts and thistle seed can often be used in specially designed feeders, and are a welcome snack for different birds. Provide seed for your backyard birds to keep them nourished all year.
