Seed Bells are a great way to attract more birds into your backyard

As temperatures dip early in the new year, birds will be looking for reliable sources of food. You can also supplement your regular feeders with a little seed bell to feed a few extra feathered friends in your yard.

Seed Bells are an ideal way to offer your birds a high-energy supplement throughout the year. They are solid, compact mix of birdseed, fruits and nuts and can be hung on outdoor trees, porch hooks, or shrubs as a treat for clinging birds. They usually last between 2 to 4 weeks depending on the activity. Attract finches, cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, wrens, titmice, woodpeckers and many more.

And new this year is a Flaming Hot Feast, a seed bell that keeps the squirrels, deer, and raccoons away.  What makes this bell special is the sunflower hearts, peanuts, golden safflower, and mealworms are coated in a secret sauce that is extra spicy. Birds don't taste the hot but most mammals will avoid it.
