    Because each kind of bird prefers a certain kind food, one of the best ways to get variety of birds is to provide a variety of foods.  This can be accomplished by having a couple of feeding stations in your yard, each meant to attract a different kind of bird. 

    Black Oil Sunflower Seed

    Black oil sunflower seed is the go-to seed that will attract the most kinds of birds.  Cardinals, chickadees, sparrows, finches, nuthatches will all enjoy this food.

    Nijer Seed

    Nijer seed (Black Thistle) is loved by finches, especially Goldfinches.  Because the seed is so fine, this food requires special feeders to keep it from pouring out of larger feeder holes.

    Suet

    Suet is high is in calories and is enjoyed by clinging birds of all sorts.  Woodpeckers, nuthatches, and chickadees will visit a suet feeder often.

    Nectar

    The smallest birds to visits our area, hummingbirds are the metabolic wonders of the bird world.  In order to hover like they do, they needs lots and lots of high energy food.  Hang a hummingbird feeder near a window or porch and watch the antics begin!

    Peanuts

    Whether whole or shelled, birds love peanuts.  Woodpeckers and Blue Jays will find them.

    Fruit

    Oranges and grape jelly are a favorite of Baltimore Orioles.  Orioles only visit our area during spring migration, but for the couple of weeks they are here, it's worth a few oranges.

    Corn Cobs

    Whether you love squirrels or hate them, you can't ignore them.  Squirrels will be happy (and the birds will be too!) if you give the squirrels something for themselves.  Corn cobs fit that bill nicely.
