Birds use a lot of energy and when the cold winter weather comes along, they must eat more to maintain their body temperature and stay healthy. Provide them with mixes that contain energizing seeds and grains that are rich in fat. During the rest of the year, you can feed them with all-season mixes that are adapted to their needs.
Fat balls are very nutritious. Quality ingredients give them a homogenous appearance that is not brittle or too hard to peck on frosty days. Tits, sparrows, chaffinches and goldfinches simply love them.
Peanuts, mealworms, berries and various insects are all small treats to please your garden visitors. Get into the habit of feeding them on a regular basis and you will be rewarded by their delightful song.
