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 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.
