Good Things Come From Fargo, ND

I won the UPS game! Monday, my package from Crate & Barrel arrived and yesterday, I got a big box of birdseed.

Well, technically, Bird got a big box of birdseed. Bird has been getting increasingly finicky when it comes to his food, and I have exhausted every iteration imaginable of storebought seed over the past several months. At one point, we settled on a bagged mix just for doves, but after awhile, he even turned his nose beak up at that. I decided the easiest thing to do would be to custom mix my own seed blend, but even the local wild bird specialty stores don't carry all of the varieties I'm looking for, especially impossible-to-find red millet.

So I turned to the internet. And whaddya know? I found eBirdseed.com. I ordered 10 lbs. of red millet and a bunch of pecan suet to scope them out, and so far I'm impressed. The seed is fresh and super-clean with no hulls or debris--high quality. Plus, they hand-wrote a 'thank you' on the invoice and included a bonus bag of sunflower heart chips--extras are always nice. :) The real test, though, was whether Bird would like it, and he does. He's been camped out in his food dish all day, chowing down.

So to sum it up, I'm very pleased with eBirdseed.com (did I mention that their shipping is always free?) and will no doubt be ordering from them again. If you're in the market for wild bird food, you might give them a try. Let me know if you're planning to place an order and I can give you a referral code; I think we both might get a discount.

I'll have to check out eBirdseed.com and see what their prices are. Do they also sell birdhouses and things of that sort?

Their prices seemed to run from average to a little expensive (for some things), in my opinion. The red millet I was after was about the same price on a few other sites I looked at.

They do have some different types of feeders, but not an extremely exhaustive selection. It seems like they have identified a favorite feeder or two for each seed type or bird and have decided to leave it at that. I don't actually remember seeing any birdhouses, but I could be wrong.

Alright, thanks. :)

Earlier in the year we got a decent cedar birdfeeder from Wal-Mart and I would love to have a nice birdhouse as well. All of this reminds me, I need to get some ears of corn for the squirrel feeder.
