HBMIX06 – Sunflower Hearts, Raisins, Mealworms & Mixed Suet Pellets

Sunflower Hearts for garden birds are ‘the’ go to seed for most. A fast food but with more healthy benefits. When insects are in short supply, they provide a high energy, high protein alternative. Support feeding birds this oil rich food helps to keep their feathers and skin in tip top condition. Buying hearts means less mess under and around your bird table. When autumn arrives, stepping up feeding gives them the energy they need to make it through a frosty night. Short winter days and long winter nights mean that small birds have to eat efficiently to gain the most benefit.

Raisins in a mix is a good way to attract the songbirds to your feeders. They would normally eat a lot of berries but when they are no longer available, putting them in a mix still gives them what they like along with the other food.

Mealworms are a firm favourite with all garden birds.  When live insects are in short supply, they provide a high energy, high protein alternative. Support feeding. Offering mealworms is a treat, so don’t over do it. When autumn arrives, stepping up feeding gives them the energy they need to make it through a frosty night. Short winter days and long winter nights mean that small birds have to eat efficiently to gain the most benefit.

Mixed Suet Pellets contain peanuts along with insects, mealworms and berries and are a great energy snack for all bird types.  In winter they are an essential source of fats to help the birds get the energy they need to make it through a cold night. A small bird will eat up to 30% of its body weight during daylight hours in winter so your feeders will be busy. You can feed these from a tube feeder, on the bird table or in your ground feeding dishes.

Birds become reliant on supplemental feeding, so once you start it’s now advised to feed throughout the year. Adult birds break up food before giving it to their young, so it is safe to feed during the breeding season.. You will see an example of them breaking up food in the video on the About us page.
