Never buy bird seed again! This mix will allow you to grow a natural bird feeder in your own yard. The species in this mix were selected to provide seed sources for song birds during the Fall migration and into early Winter. Birds not only eat the seed, but they redistribute it later as they fly along helping to introduce these native species back into the landscape. Flowers provide color from Spring to Fall and birdwatchers will rejoice with all the visitors they will receive.
