Anyone know a good home-made recipe for cardinal food?
I have a nesting pair in my neighborhood and I would like to make sure they stick around :)

They are not too complicated. Put a feeder 5-6 feet off the ground and fill it with black oil sunflowers.

Make sure they have access to water year round (especially in the cold winter months).

I get tons of Cardinals at my house (I live next to a wild life refuge though) but JayinTO is right, I buy the cheapest bag of bird food I can find, then buy a bag of black oil sunflower seeds and mix them together. The other day I had 5 males and 4 females out there. They seem to love the seeds.

I skip the cheap stuff, most of is stuff like red milo that no one likes! Except for the mice!

We have a pair of cardinals that visit our feeders ...we pamper them with mix of nuts and seeds dried fruit - ( no milo no millet ) they enjoy these seeds - also -- we grade some homemade suet ( organic ) and place it in a container inside the platform feeder - they also enjoy the heated bird bath - ( wish we could find a solar bird bath fountain ...)

Good luck !

Oh, the cheap bag I buy is a mix of nuts, seeds and corn, it's a chunky mix, no red milo or millet, just bigger seeds.
