While there are many different species of birds with varied dietary preferences, there are certain types of foods that are generally popular among a wide range of bird species. Here are three commonly favoured foods that attract a diverse array of birds:
Sunflower Seeds: Sunflower seeds are highly regarded by numerous bird species. They are a great source of energy and provide essential nutrients. Birds such as finches, nuthatches, and woodpeckers are particularly fond of sunflower seeds. You can offer them in bird feeders or scatter them on the ground. https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/products/black-sunflower-seed
Suet: Suet is a high-energy food made from animal fat. It is especially beneficial for birds during colder months when they require additional calories to stay warm. Many insect-eating birds, such as woodpeckers, nuthatches and thrushes, are attracted to suet feeders. https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/collections/fats-suets
Mealworms: Mealworms are the larvae of darkling beetles and are highly sought after by insectivorous bird species. Robins, wrens, warblers, and thrushes are just a few examples of birds that relish mealworms. These can be provided either live or dried and can be placed in a specialised mealworm feeder or scattered on a platform feeder. https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/products/live-mealworms
Remember, bird preferences can vary based on location and habitat. Providing a diverse range of food options, including these popular choices, can help attract a greater variety of bird species to your garden or bird-watching area.
