This bird seed "mix" is almost all red milo. There is also a little bit of cracked corn, a little bit of white millet and a very, very few sunflower seeds. Except for Mourning Doves very few birds eat milo (whether it is red or white milo) and you are pretty much wasting your money buying a bird seed mix that has such a high percentage of milo in it . Here is a description of red milo from a bird watching website:
"Milo is a filler seed with poor nutritional value for birds. This grain is available in both red (pictured) and white varieties. Because it is large and bulky, it is less expensive than most other types of birdseed, but it is less appealing to most bird species. Very few birds will eat milo, though it is a favorite food for doves, wild turkeys and pheasants. Milo is often used as a filler in bulk commercial seed mixes, making them less valuable because much of the seed will be wasted."

If you love to watch backyard birds, it's really convenient to have a bucket of bird seeds. Birds love it. Seeds stay dry and safe from other backyard visitors in this bucket. Bucket opening makes scooping very easy. What a joy to watch the wrens, dove, phoebe, robins and finches play outside my window.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1234 This bird seed is garbage.
This bird seed mix is the worst you can buy. It's full of mainly red milo, which is only eaten by very few birds and not the kind you want to attract to your feeder. It costs less than most because they use garbage seed. Put it in you feeder and the next day you will see nothing but a bunch of the red milo left because the birds won't eat it. It has very little nutritional value. It's a waste of your money.

We decided to get a bird feeder to help the local birds through the winter in the northeast (NY). The first bag of seed we ordered from an online superstore was the Wagner's Greatest Variety. This attracted an steady flow of chickadee, titmice and woodpeckers. When I saw the bucket of Four Season Wild Bird Food while shopping at the Home Depot, I bought it because it was more economical and to save on shipping. The bucket was also easier to handle than a bag. Unfortunately, when I put this food into the feeder, all of the birds who were frequenting the feeder were not a fan. They would pick at the seed and toss it on the ground. The birds would normally empty the feeder within 3 days. This food sat in the feeder for over a week and the food that was taken mostly ended up on the ground.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DavidNJ2241 Great way to store bird food
While it is nice to have a container for storage - there still should be a "bag" that we can buy to refill the plastic container. Seems like a large cost to make just the plastic. wish you all made them in a bag to refill. thanks

I am sorry, but this stuff is full of twigs and JUNK SEED that birds just kick out of the feeder! The one star is actually for the nice bucket the poor quality product is sold in! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. We have many songbirds on our property but when I filled our feeders with this seed they were just not interested. As a test, my husband and I crumbled up a loaf of dried whole wheatberry bread and put that out for them...it was all gone by the end of that day and the birds happily repaid us with their cheerful songs.
I have returned to buying better seed from another company. WAGNER used to be a reputable seed supplier, not any longer. I even wrote a letter to the company after purchasing several bags of Black oil sunflower seed that were so full of debris and twigs that we had to screen it to actually be able to use it in the feeders!!! The debris comprised at least 1/3 of the total content of each bag...OUTRAGEOUS!
