And Come Talk to Us About Our Newest No Mess Blend: DP

No Mess DP is similar to our custom blended No Mess Northwest, but we added a small amount of hulled millet to create this blend. Why? Well, many people enjoy watching the birds that millet attracts: doves, juncos, towhees, small and larger sparrows, etc. Millet is often not very popular here, since it can sprout unless the hulls are removed. If it sprouts, it can grow into tough grass-like weeds that make us humans go yuck! But, if the hulls are removed it can't sprout, so the bad side effect when bits are left behind is gone. So, if you want to attract the birds that like millet into your yard, this blend could help. It's all 100% edible bird food, like all of our No Mess blends. See what your birds think of it and SAVE since the 20# bags are on Sale! (We will soon add 5# and 10# bags, too, though they aren't on sale at special rates.)



Spring & Summer Feeding


Over 100 North American bird species supplement their natural diets with bird seed, suet, fruit and nectar obtained from feeders.

Access to abundant and healthy food supplies is important to birds…regardless of the season. Bird feeders provide a portion of these important nutritional needs for your backyard birds throughout the year.

Birds with access to backyard feeders benefit greatly from their ability to spend less time foraging for food and more time engaging in activities that enhance their health and safety. These activities can include:

  • Feeders allow breeding birds to spend less time searching for food and more time selecting better nesting sites and constructing higher quality nests. Adults will also have more time available for protecting their nest, eggs and young from predators.
  • Research studies have shown that birds with access to bird feeders will often lay their eggs earlier than those without feeders. This is significant because earlier broods typically have better rates of survival and fledging success than later broods.
  • When abundant food is accessible to parent birds, it means that more food is provided to their chicks. This extra nutrition can increase the nestling’s rate of growth and reduce aggression among nest siblings.
  • Access to bird feeders allow breeding females to spend less time foraging which leads to better protection of eggs from predators, earlier fledging of the nestlings and higher survival rates of the brood.
  • Birds are very vulnerable to predators while searching for food, the distraction of foraging results in a reduced ability to focus on dangers and threats from predators. Less time spent foraging means more time spent being vigilant in spotting a predator in time to successfully evade it.
  • Feeding your birds in the summer will not make them too lazy, too dependent or keep them from migrating at the appropriate time. These misconceptions have been dispelled by modern research and observation.
  • Contrary to popular belief, recent research shows summer to be the most abundant season for birds to visit feeders.

The food and housing we provide can make a significant difference on how well birds will thrive and survive in our own backyards!
