FAQ

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 or else the birds will leave. 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. From early fall through the winter, natural food sources become harder to find so it is important to keep feeders full with bird seed during this time. You can enjoy your birds 12 months of the year.

What is the best bird food?

To attract the greatest variety of birds, feed the birds the seeds they like to eat. Oil Sunflower Seed is 1 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 (including ones which contain Oil Sunflower) that will attract the 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. For example, some use a weighted system that closes the feeder port when the weight of a squirrel is sensed. Squirrel baffles are also available to place above or below your feeder (depending on how your feeder is mounted) to prevent the squirrels from reaching your feeder. Additionally, there are 2 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?

The best place to store your bird seed is elevated on a shelf in a cool, dry location in your garage, basement or storage shed. Whether you keep your bird seed in the original bag or in a storage container, you should make sure that it is closed or sealed tightly. It is also 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. Keeping your seed dry will help it last longer.

Should I clean my feeder and how often should I do it?

Moldy or decomposing seeds are not healthy for birds to eat. You should wash and disinfect your feeder at least once a month and more frequently during wet weather. First wash the feeder in hot, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. To disinfect the feeder, immerse it for a couple of minutes in a solution of 1 part household bleach to 9 parts water. Rinse again completely with clean water and dry before refilling. You should thoroughly wash your hands after you have finished cleaning your feeder.

    Birds here love this

    By LKWFLA on Feb 14, 2021

    In south Florida I get a few wintering finches and they love this food, but the main draw is buntings. Tons of painted buntings from October to mid April, and a few indigo pairs also. Only problem is all the birds, and squirrels, love it so you need a feeder that keeps the larger birds out.

    Not what is advertised

    By Bess on Sep 14, 2020

    The bag says "loaded with sunflower chips and nyjer seeds". Sunflower chips and nyjer seeds are the first ingredients listed. See photo for what was really in the bag. My goldfinches wouldn't eat it.

    Birds wouldn't eat

    By CocatNm3 on Jul 16, 2020

    I should have paid attention to the negative reviews. I put this out in 2 thistle feeders and the birds were interested at first and then completely lost interest after eating about 1/8 of the seed. I thought maybe they couldn't get the seeds out easily from the feeders so I put the seed into tray feeders. Again, the birds ate just a little and then left it to go stale.I noticed that all they were really interested in were the bits of sunflower seeds but didn't touch the rest of the seed including the nyger. I ended up throwing the seed onto the ground for the bugs and mice.

    My Finches Love This

    By Liberty on Jul 17, 2020

    I was so pleased with this finch food -- absolutely no waste left in the feeder like some other brands. This year I seem to have twice as many red finch then I have ever had so it has kept me busy keeping the feeder cleaned and filled. With less "trash" seed to worry about, the easier it is to clean and refill. One little warning and I figure it's really okay, as all involved seem to get a share, the squirrels like this also!
