I feed my backyard birds year round with shelled raw sunflower seeds.
There are juncos, sparrows, chickadees, common ground doves, an occasional pigeon, towhees, one very noisy bluebird, and large ground woodpeckers. Then there's always a squirrel or two that's trying to snatch all the seeds on the ground. Forgot to mention some unwelcome visitors like a skunk and a ugly possum.
Deer, rabbits, chipmunks, squirrels and all kinds of birds frequent my feeding area. I have a section of my yard that I toss a deer mix on, for the most part the chickens eat all the corn and leave everything else for the others.
We also have a Hummingbird feeder and five or six come and visit all day long. Just found a simple way to make a feeder for them so I am hoping that more come around.
Usually just the birds and squirrels, though I think a few times the skunk may have eaten what I left down for the birds.
I used to put out a little handful of dry cat food since I see so many random kittens wandering about but my mom thought it was a bad idea so I stopped.
If butterflies and bees count too they certainly love our lilac bush. ^_^
We've had a few really pretty butterflies lately.
we dont. We have stray cats that roam around (which mine thinks he made a friend with thru the window apparently), and this one raccoon that wont leave my porch alone. It's not afraid of humans, and since we do come home at night sometimes, I'm afraid its going to attack me or my kids.
I dont leave food on our porch at all, so we dont know why it comes around
