In the meantime, though, since it seems we will be going through lots of bird food, I decided to make my own since it's pretty expensive at the store. I did a little reading online and here's what I came up with - so easy and MUCH cheaper than store bought bird feed:
Generic cheerios (can be crushed a little - I crushed some with my hand)
Shelled Peanuts (chopped them in food processor)
Shelled sunflower seeds
Dry corn kernels (bag of popping corn)
I've got some of the cheerios and oatmeal left over for next time, and will try to buy some of the other things in larger quantities next time. I used one jar each of the peanuts and sunflower seeds, one large bag of corn, and some
I put it all together in a huge bowl and WAH-LAH! Cheap bird food!
