I just started using the Pennington Ultra Premium Nut and Fruit Blend Bird Seed. I read in the book where this seed will attract even more species of Sparrows and Wrens. I may add another feed later such as the tiny White Sunflower Seed, but for now I feel this is a good seed start.
I’ve had this feeder in
use for years and over time had to add a tray on its bottom to collect all the
sunflower hulls. The birds will crack the outer shell to
get to the soft seed inside. I am cleaning the tray out daily. Notice the cast iron tray bird feeder; prime for another type of bird seed in the future.
This copper feeder has the
nut and fruit blend seeds. I am seeing more Sparrows and Wren species since I
started using this feed.
Adding the piece of round
metal below the feeders made it squirrel proof.
