What type of feeder and food will determine the types of birds you draw in. I find most birds like a feeder with a good perch area, something they can really grab onto. The tube type are great for the finch size birds and others will use it as well but you'll get more large birds if you have a larger perch area. I find a favorite for most all of them is blackoil sunflower seed. I buy mine on sale from a local store when they run the ad for around 13 bucks for a 50 pound bag. The small bags are way to overpriced for the amount you get. Even the larger woodpeckers will use the feeder I have all the time. This is a shot I took a couple years ago with the 560 before I went dslr.
