Feeding Tips

  • With food resources scarcer now, it is essential to feed garden birds all year round.
  • Once you have started to feed the birds it is important to continue this, and develop a routine, as the birds will become reliant upon your help.
  • Provide food throughout the whole year especially during breeding, nesting and fledgling periods.
  • Locate feeders stations near cover so that they’re easily accessible, but not too close if there is a risk of predators.

Hygiene

  • Always ensure garden birds have plenty of fresh clean water for drinking and bathing
  • Clean feeding and drinking areas regularly with a mild disinfectant
  • Keep food fresh and dry, removing any wet food to prevent the spread of bacteria and diseases

  • Keep packaging away from children to avoid suffocation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why are the birds not visiting my feeders?

A. It is not uncommon for birds to take some time to visit new feeders or food that is offered. It can be down to the species in your area and other food resources that are available. Make sure you are providing some cover for the birds and make available some fresh drinking water.

Q. Why are the birds discarding some seeds?

A. Wild birds are selective over what they eat and when. It is not that they do not like it but they might have another source or they don’t need it right now. Never remove or stop feeding these seeds as shortages can happen at any time.

Q. Would the discarded seed grow below my feeder?

A. Peckish Sunflower Hearts is not a “no grow” mix. Given the right conditions the seed could germinate.

Q. Where do the birds land?

A. This feeder has pull out perches in the base, birds will happily use these to perch on whilst feeding.
