AUBURN (CBS13) — A special bird seed recipe sold by a local pet supply store is suddenly soaring in popularity.
Roger Strahle created a blend that’s become a birdwatcher’s bonanza at Wild Bird Station (1153 Grass Valley Hwy.)
“You get very little waste and there’s no filler in this particular blend,” he said.
He says his bird food attracts colorful characters such as house finches, black-headed grosbeaks and white-breasted nuthatches.
Now Bay Area bird-lovers are buying it at a record-breaking pace after a San Francisco Chronicle story on his special creation.
Roger says he makes the seed combination in 2,000-pound lots. The secret, he says, is the black oil sunflower seed he uses.
