I found a cheap food for the birds at Busy Beaver so I bough a set. It says on the package that it would attract wild birds. The regular visitors at our backyard are sparrows, robins, and starlings but when I put the food out, I saw a bright colored woodpecker and cardinals. Too bad my camera is so slow that I wasn't able to capture them.
It is so nice to be able to sit in our porch swing and watch these critters enjoy flying back and forth.
