    Lots of people enjoy feeding birds in their garden but they do not know what bird food to feed them. Having a bird feeder is great but knowing which bird seed and bird supplies are best is important. This article will give you some information on what bird seed to feed your garden birds and what to avoid.

     

    Bird Seed Mixtures

     

    He best bird seed mixes you can buy are those with plenty of flaked maize, peanut granules and sunflower seeds. If your bird food contains a lot of small seeds like millet then you should expect to attract mostly sparrows, finches and doves. Flaked maize is loved by blackbirds in particular and tits and greenfinch love to eat peanuts and sunflower seeds.

     

    Bird Food – Sunflower Seeds

     

    Black sunflower seeds are excellent bird seed to feed birds all year round. Birds often like sunflower seeds more than peanuts and the oil content in black sunflower seeds is particularly high.

     

    Bird Seed – Nyjer Seeds

     

    These small seeds also have a high oil content which makes them very good for birds; especially in the winter. If you want to feed birds nyjer seeds then you will have to buy a special type of bird feeder.

     

    Bird Food - Peanuts

     

    Peanuts are also rich in fat so they are popular with tits, sparrows and finches. If you crush the nuts then robins and wrens will also be attracted. Never feed birds salted or dry roasted peanuts as part of their diet.
