Gardener’s almanac (Jan. 26)

Birdseed preferences – I often put out sunflower-seed chips for the birds, but you can attract certain types of birds by offering what they like most. Black oil sunflower seed is the most universally appealing food, Ward Upham of K-State says. “If you are new to the bird-feeding game, make sure there is a high percentage of this seed in your mix,” he says in the Horticulture 2013 newsletter. “White proso millet is second in popularity and is the favorite of dark-eyed juncos and other sparrows as well as the red-winged blackbird.”
