way too much Milo.
November 25, 2013
This bird seed has a mix of white millet, red milo, split corn and black sunflower seeds. I live in the Seattle area and after a few days after I started putting up feeders and reading up on the net, I have figured that almost all of the birds in this area do not touch the red milo and most of the birds love the sunflower seeds. The problem is this mix has a ton of red milo which goes to waste and very little sunflower seed and loads of white millet. Here are the birds that come to my feeder and what they eat:
1. Oregon Junco - mainly white millet & split corn
2. House finch - white millet
3. White capped chickadee - Sunflower seed
4. Chestnut backed chickadee - Sunflower seed
5. Red breasted nuthatch - Sunflower seed.
6. Northern flicker - Split Corn.
7. Stellar Jay - Split Corn.
I have another feeder with just peanuts which the chickadees, flickers and nuthatch love. So the perfect mix for the birds in my region at least would be 30% millet, 30% sunflower seeds, 20% corn, 20% peanuts. The only one that I found close but without the peanuts which I can add separately is called Nature's Song wild bird seed which has these in perfect proportions without the peanut though. The Wagners mix contains way too much red milo which I found only the doves eat which don't frequent my area at all.
