I see a lot of birds poking their beaks into my newly seeded lawn.
Could they be eating my grass seed?

Yes! We were told to cover ours with something. Since there was no grass to begin with, we put some soil over it. If you already have grass and you're trying to just fill it in, you might want to try something like hay or mulch instead.

I have to laugh at this because as I'm typing, I'm looking out the window at my neighbor's lawn, which is covered with robins having their breakfast!!
