Introduction:Would it shock you to learn that our feathered friends prefer specific foods? Depending upon what kind of birds you'd like to attract, see the following tweet treats and tips.

  • 01

    Baltimore Orioles

    Baltimore orioles prefer insects, but good supplements for their diet include nectar or fruit. These little ones like bits of apples or oranges. If you want to offer sweet tweet treats, put apple jelly or orange marmalade out for their eating pleasure.

  • 02

    Sparrows

    Sparrows are nature's scavengers. They will forage for food you may have dropped on the lawn. But the ticket to a sparrow's heart is sunflower seeds! They will also nibble on bread crumbs or millet.

  • 03

    Bluebirds

    These guys are persnickety eaters and will love you forever if you tweet treat them with soft dried fruits like raisins or cranberries. You can also buy melted white beef fat in cakes, called suet for bluebirds cuisine. Gift them with a crunchy change from insects with peanut kernels.

  • 04

    Cardinals

    Think sunflower or safflower seeds for cardinals. Believe it or not, cardinals are shy birds and prefer keeping out of the limelight. Experts suggest placing their feeder close to the ground.

    Tips For Feeding Our Winged Ones

    All birds are alert for predators. To keep them safe, put your feeder close to shrubbery or tree branches so that they can run for cover in the event of real or imagined dangers.

    Provide a source of water near their feeding spot. Experts suggest water with little movement is best. If you don't have a particular preference for a type of bird, fill a planter with a buffet of tweet treats such as: berries, peanuts, roasted corn and crabapples.

    Finally, if for some reason you can no longer support the winged ones eating habits, be a good neighbor and taper off the amounts of food. Their wild nature will call and your feathered friends will eventually fly away.

    I love to feed the birds but my apartment building has cats roaming around outside so I don't put anything low for sure!

    I just wish Bluebirds or Cardinals were indigenous to our area but they aren't. I would love to see them, and I can only imagine feeding them. I don't feed those so unclean pigeons in my town. There are enough folks who do which keeps them dropping (ugh) everywhere lol. Thanks for the interesting article on what these birds REALLY like. H5

    I do wish I could encourage birds with your selections, but with Kitties, I dare not. The lovely feathered ones will be their dinner if I do.
