WINTER CARE FOR GARDEN BIRDS

WINTER CARE FOR GARDEN BIRDS


FOOD

• Make a commitment to feeding birds every day no matter how cold or wet

• Fat balls are a great winter energy boost; use dedicated feeders to make them easy for birds to access

• Goldfinches really enjoy Niger seeds

• Mealworms are a great way to attract Robins and Bluetits

• Peanuts are a favourite of Sparrows and Woodpeckers


DRINK

• Provide birds with fresh, clean water, especially when icy


WHERE TO FEED AND DRINK FROM?

• Clean feeders regularly; don’t risk spreading germs to these already vulnerable creatures

• Provide feeders, bird baths and tables: so that birds remember where to feed from


Stay warm this Winter.
