Mother Nature’s Wild Bird Seed

Choosing a good quality wild bird seed is critical to attract your favorite bird species. But be careful when buying seed from the store, as some manufacturers are hiding low-quality ingredients in the mix. Some companies use cheap fillers, like milo (also known as sorghum), to fill up bird seed bags. Avoid using this type of bird seed.

Canary grass seed

Canary seed is made from the seeds of the canary grass plant. It is high in protein and tryptophan and is gluten-free, making it an excellent choice for feeding small birds. Cracked corn is another good option as a wild bird feed. It attracts doves, sparrows, northern bobwhites, and juncos.

Canary grass is a native of the Mediterranean region and is now grown commercially in many parts of the world for birdseed. It has long been used by the UK for bird feeding, and in 2009, the wild bird food industry was worth PS365m in the UK. This is partly due to the fact that canary seed is easy to grow and profitable to produce.

Canary Grass is an annual plant that flowers between June and September. It can take a few years to establish itself, but can be broadcast shortly after sowing. Alternatively, it is best to drill cereal species before sowing Canary seed.

Canary grass

Canary seed is a small, buff-coloured seed produced by a plant called Canary grass. It is native to the Mediterranean region and is grown commercially around the world for its use as bird seed. The plant is not invasive and produces a substantial amount of seed that attracts and feeds a variety of bird species.

In a typical small bird seed mix, 50 percent of the mix should consist of Canary seed. These long-lasting seeds are easy to open for birds, and contain six percent fat. As such, they are an excellent choice for pet birds. Traditionally, this grass was only grown in the Mediterranean region, but today is grown commercially in a number of countries.
