Questions and Answers about Wild Birds

Question of the week:

I am new at feeding birds.  What is the best kind of seed to use?

A. Black-oil sunflower seed is the best all around choice for feed. It is enjoyed by a variety of species and is readily available. Be sure to keep stored portions of the sunflower in a dry, sealed container.

Suet is also a good choice.  Suet blocks can be purchased for $2.00 or so and a suet feeder for about $5.00.  Suet attracts a variety of species incluing woodpeckers, titmice, wrens and chickadees.
