I use Ornithon mixed into my nectar mix, it tints the water yellow but doesn't seem to worry the birds.
Make sure you follow the instructions as well.
I have also put some in the water that I am soaking my seed, I guess a large proportion is lost when I strain the bucket
of seed but some may remain.
