Ensuring birds receive a plentiful and calorie-rich diet is an ongoing challenge. See the Difference™ Bird Food Cakes, unlike other top brands, feature double the fat content, resulting in a significantly higher calorie count. This amplifies the satisfaction of each feeding session for hungry birds.
These suet cakes, rich in fat, are suitable for year-round use, whether placed in a feeder or on a bird table. They are particularly advantageous during spring, providing crucial support to busy parents raising a new generation. Additionally, they serve as a valuable resource in winter, when temperatures decrease, and daylight hours are limited.
