Which product should I buy
Over the last year or so I have bought nearly all of my wild bird seed mix from a shop called The Range. When I watch the birds that regularly visit most sps seem to land at the feeders and they then proceed to discrad most of the seeds and just eat certain types.
Is this due to the fact that the seed I buy has a lot of stuff/seeds in it the birds don't actually eat or is it that they are just being fussy. This activity inevitably leads to me going out and pulling all sorts of weeds up that I don't recognise.
Should I change my brand of seed? Any advice would be most welcome.
The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.

although ive never bought bird food from there, i would imagine it is quite cheap as the range is generally cheap ( not in a bad way ). the best thing to do is try another brand and see if there is any difference. when looking for a good bird food watch out for too much wheat -http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/6194/wheatbx0.png
because this is cheap and not many birds like it. also look out for split peas, sweetcorn and even dog biscuits (yes, dog biscuits!), because these will be no use to the birds. look out for a mix rich in sunflower seeds and hearts, because these attract a lot of species and are extremely high in energy ( about 500 calories/100g for sunflower seeds 600 calories/100g for hearts )
remember you get what you pay for. if they do like your new bird food, but you find it too expensive, buy it in bulk to save $$$. try cj wildlife's table food for tables and ground, and feeder seed or hi-energy seed for feeders
