Smaller birds such as sparrows, warblers, vireos, and thrushes are typical nocturnal migrants. It is common to find your yard filled with newly arrived migrants that came during the night each morning. By traveling at night, they can pause at sunrise and devote the entire day to feeding and resting.

A lot of these sparrows like the sunflower, peanuts, and millet in the No-mess blend bird seed. They tend to scratch for fallen seeds underneath bird feeders, particularly if they are close to cover.
