The following advertisement appeared in the May Issue of Mirabella
Magazine. (I do not have the page number).

"Happy Landings" Birdseed.  We love the look of our lawn when it's covered
with a living quilt of avian friends as they stop by for a birdseed dinner.
So often, however, we find ourselves wishing we could have more time to
observe them in their natural state.  Recently we were introduced to Happy
Landings, which is composed of the six most popular and nutritious
birdseeds, plus a seventh, more exotic variety that has a slightly narcotic
effect on the birds.  After a couple of beakfuls, they will be happy to walk
around on the lawn for three to five hours before flying off.  You can be
sure they'll get in the habit of coming back for more.  1-kilo bag, $25.00.

I don't want to point out the obvious, but this puts the birds' survival at
severe risk from predators -- raptors, cats, dogs, foxes, coyotes, people.
