    I have never been much of a bird watcher, but my last trip to Ace I saw this bag and bought it to help birds through rough winter. First day I thought that there was somethig wrong with the feeder since I had not seen any birds. My husband was joking: it has been 20-30 yrs since anyone fed them. Next morning I woke up to a surprise. We have male and female woodpecker, cardinal, blue jay and many other smaller birds of different types that I have not seen before. At one time I counted 10 of them. The only minus is that I may need another bag or two next week.

    Very few wild birds eat milo which is 39% of this product. The best product in this mix is black oil sunflower seeds and that's only 4% of the mix. Ive been a birder for 27 years, trust me, this is a waste of money.

          We were having a problem with birds getting into the chicken coop, eating the chicken feed and making a mess. We positioned a feeder outside the barnyard, and filled it with Ace Wild Bird Food. No more birds in the coop! Ace Wild Bird Food is one of the few brands that is less expensive than chicken feed!

                      I feed this food to the wild birds like Blue Jays,Cardinals and two kinds of Doves and they seem to love it since I feed them four times a day and they "clean the plate".

                              Birdseed is a big hit this cold winter. Feathered friends in a city park
                              are eating two quarts a day. This is a real crowd pleaser.
                              The sparrows who wrote this review wish Ace kept 20 pound bags
                              in stock; as it is we have to order two 20 pound bags every 2 weeks.

                                  This is a terrific mix of Sunflower, Millet and Corn. The price for a 20lb bag is very reasonable, but boy do I LOVE it when it's on sale!! I'll buy 5 or 6 bags at a time! We go through a lot in the winter. I can find larger bags of different brands for less money...but they are mostly corn and dust. This ACE brand is the best we've found so far!

                                      We feed outdoor birds all year round. Apparently bird seed is affected by seasonal crops so the price of this product varies. I buy bird seed when it is offered on sale by Ace and other stores.

                                                We go through about a bag a week using 4 different feeders. It attracts quite a variety of our feathered friends, mostly English sparrows, but a good number of red face finches along with morning, white wing and miniature Inca doves. So far no really colorful birds such as cardinals, yellow finches, etc yet but we're waiting.

                                                My only complaint would be the pieces of cracked corn tends to be too big for the average song bird to consume, this includes the larger morning and white wing doves. Pigeons shouldn't have any trouble with the corn but thankfully we don't have them visiting our feeders.

                                                I wait till it goes on sale then buy several bags at once. Stores very well in a dry cool garage.

                                                      In early 2011 this product was on sale for [$]. We love to put out seed and see 15 doves regularly, a record of around 60. But at this price we must stop feeding them. This has become more of a luxury item now!

                                                      A few years back a pair of Ring Neck Turtle Doves showed up (Colorado?!) and I couldn't stand watching them try to forage in the road so I started buying this seed for them and they have done very well. The winter Oregon and Gray Juncos love it!

                                                            We've bought much more expensive brands only to find this attracts the same birds for far less the cost. We add a little sunflower seed to the mix that we buy seperately. It works out to be a great bargain, and we have a variety of birds visit our backyard daily.

                                                              I purchased this product for two elderly neighbors and they are very happy with the birds that are attracted. Sparrows and nuthatches clean up what the larger birds leave both in the feeder and on the ground. Prior to the black bird migration, the birds most attracted were cardinals, nuthatches and sparrows. Now, they have to compete with redwinged blackbirds, starlings, grackles, and cowbirds.

                                                              If you want to attract special breeds, get something else. If you just like watching birds and would like to help all species through the winter and have plenty of activity to watch. This is a good alternative and very reasonably priced.

First day I thought that there was somethig wrong with the feeder since I had not seen any birds. My husband was joking: it has been 20-30 yrs since anyone fed them. Next morning I woke up to a surprise. We have male and female woodpecker, cardinal, blue jay and many other smaller birds of different types that I have not seen before. At one time I counted 10 of them. The only minus is that I may need another bag or two next week.

The past 4 bags have contained a lot of small white worms as well as a cob web effect on the inside of the bags. I hope this is not harmful to the birds. Other wise I buy max quanties allowed when there is a big sale going on. I make bird feeders for fun and keep expermenting with different types. Thanks Ace for the special sales you do have on the bird seed.
