Message:Hi Linda,

Yesterday, while looking for something completely different, I stumbled upon the following website: http://www.ddc.com/~kjohnson/recipes.htm

It's really a list of bird food recipes, but the author posted his/her method of introducing other foods into a bird's diet at the top.  

Remember that seeds have a high fat content.  They work better as treats than as regular food because birds do have a tendency to pick them over anything else in the bowl.  (I know I always go for the fattiest foods too...)

Good luck!
~Diana
