Receiving a degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, Zach uses his knowledge at Wingard’s Market in Lexington to educate customers about how they can make their yards more wildlife friendly. Zach works primarily with backyard birds, focusing on bird seed, bird feeders, and bird houses but also on incorporating native plants in the landscape of a homeowner’s backyard. His goals are to inspire everyday people to care for and give back to nature by feeding the birds, planting for pollinators and encouraging many other “critters” to see their yard as a premiere destination.
Learn about all the different types of seed that backyard birds love to eat. To attract a variety of birds to your yard, you will need a variety of seeds. Come and make your own bird feeder as well as make your own personal seed blend.
