Top Wiggly Tips on feeding your Garden Birds

A few handy things to think about when it comes to bird feeding - 

  • Provide a variety of foods to attract different types of birds. This can include sunflower seeds, peanuts, mealworms, and suet.
  • Use a bird feeder or table to offer the food. This will help keep it off the ground and away from pests.
  • Be sure to keep the feeder or table clean to prevent the spread of disease.
  • Avoid using foods that are high in salt or have added preservatives.
  • Offer fresh water for drinking and bathing.
  • Provide shelter and nesting sites for birds, such as bird houses or nesting boxes.
  • Avoid feeding birds during the breeding season, as it can disrupt their natural behaviour and lead to dependence on handouts.
  • Keep an eye on the amount of food you are providing, as overfeeding can lead to an imbalance in the local ecosystem.
  • Feeding birds during the winter can be beneficial as it provides an important food source when natural food is scarce.
  • Be sure to check local laws and regulations regarding feeding wild birds, as some areas may have restrictions in place.
