So we frequently go to the local reserve & collect seed grass for our finches. We are aware of which are & aren't good however we stumbled upon a large bush of seeded grass which we couldn't identify & were wondering if anybody here could? Theres just so much of it & if they can eat it then it heaps us & them. Just need to know if the birds can eat it & what it is called if possible.
For all your questions about diet and food for your finches

This is the best Autumn seeding grass you can get around here. It prefers semi-shaded moist areas - excellent finch tucker. Perfect rearing food for all Autumn breeding finches. If you have a large local supply it may be worth picking an extra large batch when its fully ripe & strip the seed into containers & freeze it for an extended supply into winter. Ideal to mix such stripped green seeds with sprouted seed mixes.
