One frustration that new "bird watchers" experience is having bird seed scattered by using a wild bird feeder. One reason that birds tend to scatter the seed is because every bird has its preference as to what it likes to eat. Oftentimes the bird becomes just like the finicky child at dinner time, picking through the morsels that most attract it! One suggestion, if you're currently using a mixed seed, try using a specific type, such as a sunflower seed in your bird feeder. You might be pleased with the results.
