The autumnal solstice is Sept. 22, 2018. You might want to consider choosing slightly different wild bird feeds to prepare for the change of season. The first question is ‘which birds will be here after summer?” In the fall, wild birds that are commonly visiting backyard feeders in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio are cardinals, woodpeckers, blue jays, goldfinches, titmice and chickadees.
All of Nature’s Window wild bird food blends are formulated for year-round feeding and will attract a variety of species. Some fall favorites are Nature’s Window Four Seasons, No Waste, Nut & Fruity, Supreme, and our Species-specifc blends: Cardinal, Wild Finch and Woodpecker.
If you prefer to mix your own wild bird food, be sure to serve Black Sunflower,
Safflower and Peanuts.
If less mess is your goal, choose Blanched Peanut Splits and Sunflower Hearts and Chips.
Satisfy the fun-to-watch goldfinches with Nyjer® and Sunflower Hearts and Chips.
