Healthy bird seed formulations for wild birds

Quality bird seeds deliver all the nutrients required by both wild and domesticated birds to enjoy health and vitality. However, different bird species have different nutritional needs, and some birds will eat certain foods while others won't touch them.

If you're buying pet bird seed, your best bet is to talk to your vet or a domesticated-bird professional to find out what type of food is optimal. However, you'll need to do a little of your own research if you're planning to use wild bird seeds to attract untamed feathered visitors to your yard.

Food in the Wild vs. Formulated Bird Seeds

It's important to understand that virtually every species of wild bird has preferred foods, as well as foods they'll readily eat when preferred foods are not available. By understanding this, you'll be able to appeal to their natural tastes and provide them with a meal they'll keep coming back for.

Sometimes, these needs are easy to provide for.

Easy Bird Seed Recipes You Can Make Yourself

If you don't want to stock your bird seed houses with generic wholesale bird seed, you can create tasty and nutritious homemade snacks for wild birds using common household ingredients.

To make filler for your bird feeder, take 1 cup each of cooking oil, peanut butter, shortening and cracked corn, and mix in enough wild bird seeds to crea...
