Do y'all have any recommendations on certain feeders or foods to get some birds into my back yard?
Get low milo content. Depending on what you have in your area, high in black oil sunflower may keep house sparrow numbers down, but that's not really working for me well. The sparrows at least attract other stuff.
Gold finches are leaving about now, so it may be too late for thistle feeders. Put one of those up next winter near your grain one. The males will be beautiful by April.
Suet can be good for woodpeckers, chickadees, etc.
I generally have 4 species of doves in y yard at one time. I am in a neighborhood, so i don't get much rare stuff.
