They love Nyjer, sunflower seeds, and conflower seeds.
One reader asked about the configuration of our bird feeders, so I am going to offer some ideas that work well, especially for Creation gardeners. I have made many adjustments to get the best viewing.
Some considerations are:
- Maximum viewing from the most used room.
- The problem of feeding in a woodland paradise.
- Ease in filling the feeder.
- Dealing with squirrels who may dominate, empty, and destroy feeders.

who does not love them?
| Many plants are natural feeders -|
Butterfly Bush and Bee Balm attract Hummingbirds.
| Beautyberry is toxic for humans but attractive to birds|
late in the season.
| Birds love Poke berries and Wild Strawberries so much -|
they plant them every place they rest.
| If this were not a weed, Poke would be treasured|
for harboring beneficial insects and feeding birds.
Humans do eat Poke salad when properly prepared.
