'Tis the season for birding! By this time of year, many species of birds have come out for breeding and are looking out for plentiful food sources. While many birds can find natural food sources on their own, adding a feeder to your yard or garden is a wonderful way to invite our feathered friends to stay. Whether you're adding your first feeder or looking to bring more birds to your garden, the type of bird food you offer can make a huge difference. Making informed choices about the type of food in your feeders as well as the ingredients in your seed products can bring new species to your area and even deter unwanted birds and animals in some instances. 

Here are some snacks that your feathered friends will love:

Safe Travels, Hummingbirds!

While many of us are not actively traveling, hummingbird species are busy migrating south for winter. Right now, hummingbird species are gathering and preparing for the last stretch of fall relocation, with some going as far south as Mexico and Central America. These hummingbirds will spend the winter in these warmer climates until as early as February, when they will begin their journey north again. This cycle of migration can include traveling hundreds and thousands of miles throughout the year for these little birds, so taking small steps to help the hummingbirds can greatly help them get to their destination.
