5 Ways to HOST A Backyard Banquet

Hosting a lively backyard banquet is as easy as setting the right table (bird feeder) and serving a palatable menu (seed). Your guests can provide the entertainment and the music.

1. Rose-breasted Grosbeak 

Plates piled high with black oil sunflower seeds will water the beaks of these highly desired songbirds. They also enjoy sides of safflower, thistle and corn.

2. Indigo Bunting

Every banquet needs music and this guest sings with a cheerful gusto while dining on small seeds such as thistle or nyjer. While certainly not the most presentable dish these bouncy songbirds also love mealworms.

3. Cardinals

Bring these North American beauties to your banquet by serving large seeds such as sunflower, safflower, peanuts or cracked corn. Black sunflower seeds are an absolute favorite and must have for any backyard party.

4. American Goldfinch

These gregarious guests are the life of the party. Their diet consists entirely of seeds so make sure a songbird mix consisting of sunflower hearts, thistle and nyjer is on the menu.

5. Woodpecker

Peanut butter, that’s right, this delectable treat is a favorite of these head pounding beauties. They also enjoy a seed mix full of peanuts, black oil sunflower seeds and the ever pretty mealworm.
