Critters from Dove to Sandhill Crane showed up to eat. They cleaned the area and left nothing behind ;)
Although the squirrels, woodpeckers, and other birds love this, the deer wait for their daily serving. Less than a minute after I spread it and walk inside, they are already eating it up.
Love these products! You are alway on time with shipping and very good with communicating regarding it.
The products are just what I (and the birds) want! The prices are fine! The delivery is prompt! The packaging is excellent!
This was a very good selection of seed, corn and peanuts. Far better than some of the other offerings & my resident woodpecker really likes it.
The squirrels, deer, and birds seem to really enjoy this blend.
Our bird feeder has a baffle and is placed in a spot in the backyard where squirrels and chipmunks can't get to the feeders (they don't even try anymore). Since birds are messy eaters, quite a bit falls to the ground and provides the squirrels (and even rabbits) with a nice snack. And occasionally, I will treat them myself. I basically bought the food with them in mind, as well as for a couple of bunnies who are eating SOMETHING (not sure what)from the birdseed spills. I bought the food with these fluffies in mind, but actually was hoping that I would provide some food that had corn and seed that would appeal to the grackles and starlings that took over the yard in late spring. I even bought a ground feeder that I could place away from the main feeding station. Well, that didn't work. It's not that the food was not to the liking of furred and feathered friends, it was that the chipmunks (and we have a LOT of them)move in so quickly that they can empty the entire feeder within a few minutes. It's kind of funny to see them stuff their cheek pouches so full it looks like they were trying to eat a chicken egg whole. They move in so fast, even the squirrels didn't have a chance. Finally, I ended up hanging up the feeder anyway, and not only all the blackbirds come, but so did my sweet doves, cardinals, and a few jays (especially if there were peanuts). The other feeders were filled with seeds that other birds like, but are the black birds last choice, The chipmunks still grab the fallout faster than anyone else, but my main objective was to offer the bully birds other foods that they might like more, so they leave the other food for the rest of the birds and do not chase them away entirely to hog the feeders. This food does make a good treat for the birds and animals that visit our backyard. I would also like to mention that the food is very popular even though it is now summer with a lot of easy-to-find natural food sources and neighbor's ripening gardens. Depending on the price (since prices for feed seem to fluctuate a lot), I would like to buy a bigger quantity when winter comes around. I also should mention that I live in a state that is known for growing things like corn, wheat, alfalfa, etc. , so the critters here are used to eating them, and Wildlife Buffet just makes it all the more convenient. If you live in an area, where such foods are scarce or non-existent, some of your creatures, especially birds that seem particularly picky, may not even recognize the ingredients as food. That might explain the big disparity in the reviews where people have great success with the blend (like me), or it isn't touched at all.
All wildlife seems to love this item, from birds,squirrels,rabbits, and chipmunks. It is economical, and a little goes a long way, with no waste or uneaten portions. The variety in this mix appeals to all critters.
I bought this for the squirrels primarily but I have the deer eating this, the cardinals eating it and I think the squirrels think they died and went to heaven. Its being gobbled up faster than I can refill the feeders!
I live in a rural area with rabbits, mice, rats, squirrels, deer, possums, moles and of course birds (I've seen them all). I got this to keep the squirrels and possums out of my actual bird feeder (and our trash cans) by throwing this around the entry point to our fenced backyard and it worked. What all wildlife actually ate this? Couldn't tell you. I threw probably a pound of this mixed with bird food and dried mealworms out to make it a foraging opportunity. Then I checked 2 days later, all that is left is peanut shells. Since they loved this enough to let my bird feeder be just for birds now I foresee purchasing this in bulk from now on. I'll be buying a tray type feeder to attach to the fence for the squirrels to add in some extra cat TV for my indoor cat and this mix is big enough to not fall through the screen. It's a win-win.
