Westerman’s Bird Seed

Share This Post

Part of me being an adult includes the love of bringing birdies to my garden so I can watch them from my window, or even sit outside and listen to all the tweet tweets. I know right, such an “old” thing to do! I am very aware of where I feed the birds as I don’t want my cats to feel like I am providing them with takeaways, and when Westerman’s sent me some adorable little bird houses and feeders, I found the perfect spot to hang these up.

Well, it seems that the birds in the area could sniff their treats out and within an hour I had a variety of birds fluttering about and spilling seed onto the dirt below – yay for more beautiful grass coming through when I so desperately needed it.

I saw how much joy the birds coming to visit brought tome, as well as others on the property, and I really have Westerman’s to thank for this. The birds love the little feeders I have up for them, and the seed is definitely something special as they now all congregate in my garden waiting for the next meal.

I reached out to Westerman’s and asked if I could interview them about their seed and other offerings as I see the quality and care that goes into everything they put out. So sit back, grab something to drink, and let’s get to know them a little better!

It is an easy and popular food to add your garden bird buffet, attracting a variety of wild birds to your garden all year round. Our Suet is especially beneficial in Winter when birds need a good source of fat and energy to survive through the cold.

The quality of these products cannot be competed with, and I have seen how the birds genuinely appreciate the care and consideration taken when feeding them. I love Westerman’s; love their products; and will continue using them to feed and show love to the wild birds around me.
