Anyone here like bird watching? Whether that's going somewhere to watch or attracting them to your yard? We get a lot of birds and different ones in different parts because of the varied terrain we have and I love watching them!! Recently I've been feeding them too and I love it. We have a fairly big tube feeder in the backyard, a 3 tier platform feeder type thing in the front garden, and then I just found another tube feeder for smaller birds and hung it up in the front on a tree. So far the birds seem to prefer the platform. Same feed. Just filled/refilled both of those and also tossed tons of black oil sunflower seeds all over various parts of the yard and woods etc (our yard is huge). I still need to refill the feeder in the back but I ran out of the other kind so gotta open the new bag. Anyway, I find the BOSS tends to attract lots of bluejays which is cool and all but they can be bullies and loud. At one point a few months ago we had like 7 or 8 of them at once haha I find the front feeder tends to attract more of the smaller birds. Chickadees, nuthatches, finches, etc. We had nyjer/thistle seed out at one point which they loved also but right now we just used a leftover Christmas seed blend but I love having the feeders in different places and different types of feed because the small birds have a safe, protected place to feed away from the bigger birds. There's also tons of small trees, bushes, and shrubs in the front yard for them whereas the back is mostly open and pine trees with a couple small trees next to the house. I also find the BOSS attracts chipmunks and squirrels which I love too. The dog is less than enthused. Lol It even attracts deer! Found that put the last time I put it out and they came almost to the backyard right outside the dog's window! So this time I put it on the hill way away from him but I'm hoping they come! A month or two ago I bought a squirrel food mix which was just whole corn kernels, BOSS, and I think some peanuts and maybe something else. Put it down in the same spot. The animals hulled all the BOSS but left the corn. And I put corn down last winter too but cracked but they didn't touch it. Bag says it attracts deer, etc. But like I said they only ate BOSS. Apparently our animals are picky and only eat BOSS. I can't figure it out. Lol oh well. Anyway, I'm just really excited about buying more bird food and refilling the feeders and wanted to share it. I don't really know much about birds or identifying them, etc. But I'm hoping to learn more as I watch them at the feeder Soooo.... Sorry I got so long winded but anyone else love birds/wildlife like I do?
