Feeding straight sunflower hearts to wild birds

Posted by British Bird Food 29/09/2014 0 Comment(s)

Sunflower Hearts for wild birds

Many people say - what is the best food for my wild garden birds to eat? I am afraid there is no prescriptive answer, except every garden is different. However there may be one solution that is not always considered. Straight Sunflower Hearts for your wild bird feeding can be very successful. Goldfinches, Bullfinches, Sparrows, Songbirds and many more species of wild birds all enjoy the oil content of sunflower hearts. It may be that you don't get such a wide variety of birds at your wild bird feeding station, or it may be that you see an improvement. As said previously, it can not be predicted, so it is a case of trial and error. Most of the good wild bird food mixes have sunflower hearts in them and some of them have sunflower hearts as the main ingredient. This is so you don't have to worry about mixing and blending the right ingredients, you will find many mixes in our online shop as well as the basic straights for wild birds. If you have not tried before, just buy a small quantity of sunflower hearts and try your birds on them, they may or may not be successful (more like to succeed than not) and once you know, you can establish a successful wild bird feeding regime. Coming up to the winter months as we are now is a good time to try out new foods for your wild bird population in your garden and beyond, they have plenty to chose from right now with an abundance of food in the field and hedgerows, but in a few weeks time, when the first frosts start, you need to be ready with your stock of wild bird food to ensure they are kept going though the wintner months.
