Birdfood Deal of the Month
As days lengthen into early summer, adult birds are spending their days foraging for food for their young, whilst only grazing snacks for themselves as they are on the go.
Hatchlings are particularly vulnerable whilst they are trapped in the nest. They need both a very high protein diet to promote their rapid growth, and moisture, which is difficult to get up to nests. So, at this time of year, even birds that would usually eat just eat seeds, collect and feed insects and caterpillars to their young. It’s the most efficient way to get all the protein and fluid needed by their nestlings, whether hatchling or fledgling.
