Thread Name: BS: Birdwatching
Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching
The birds here (just east of the Rockies) go through seed almost by the ton. I buy black oil and the big striped mixed, as the birds and squirrels have preferences. Peanuts also go quickly. I let my neighbors feed the English sparrows (they like the small seeds) and feed the chickadees and others that prefer sunflower seeds.
My daughter is closer to the mountains, in the foothills of the Rockies. She gets a big variety- bluebirds, hummingbirds, sapsuckers and woodpeckers and damn near all the birds that go through this province. Not a real birder, but like to watch them. I like the intelligence of the much maligned magpie and bluejays.
