Woodlands wild bird food is a unique blend of nutritious and tasty ingredients, packaged in an easy to carry and use 3kg bag. It is designed to attract wild birds and squirrels.
Feeding wildlife can be beneficial for their health and well-being, and can help them deter pests like mice. In addition, feeding woodland species is linked to their breeding success, which has been observed in some locations.
Using a combination of natural and supplementary seed, this woodlands wild bird food attracts a wide variety of North American songbirds to your backyard feeders. The seeds are a good source of energy and fats that help wild birds survive cold winters.
It is important that you provide woodlands wild bird food in a sheltered area near trees, shrubs and bushes so that the birds are not exposed to predators or weather conditions that can be detrimental to their health and wellbeing. You should also keep the feeder clean and free of debris as this can impede the ability of wild birds to find food.
We found that there was a significant correlation between the proportion of mobbing events and the number of individual birds in a mob event across three seasons (fall=red, summer=blue, spring=green). These results suggest that seasonal fluctuations in the species composition of songbirds may have a significant impact on the likelihood of mobbing.
Attracts a Wide Variety of Wild Birds
The best way to attract a wide variety of birds is by providing feeders in different sizes and shapes. Table-like feeders are best for ground-feeding birds like sparrows and juncos, while hopper or tube feeders are good for shrub and treetop feeders.
The right mixture of seed will also attract a wide range of birds. Sunflower seeds are the most popular, but millet and corn can also be good choices.
In addition to offering the right food, you’ll want to keep your feeders and birdbaths clean and free of clutter. This helps keep predators away and increases your chances of getting a great view of the local feathered residents.
Natural Plant Fat & Protein
Wild birds prefer sunflower seeds, safflower, peanuts and Nyjer seed because they are high in natural plant fat & protein. These fats & proteins provide energy for birds to fly, hunt for food and keep warm in the colder months of winter.
Unfortunately, many of the cheap bird seed mixes sold at hardware stores, home improvement centers and pet stores contain filler seeds and grains that wild birds don’t like. The result is that most of the “cheap” seed ends up on the ground under the feeder where it can rot and attract rodents to your yard.
The best quality bird feed mixes use premium seeds & grains with natural plant fat & protein and are fortified with omega-3 fatty acids, calcium and vitamins to create a high quality nutritional blend. A quality mix will also be preservative & additive free, ensuring that your birds are getting a healthy, nutritious diet without risking harm from contaminants or pests.
Deters Nuisance Animals
One of the most enjoyable aspects of owning a home is watching the world around you come to life. This is particularly true of wild birds, who tend to spend a lot of time in or near our backyards. The good news is that many of these birds are surprisingly docile and will often spend their waking hours perched in trees, under shrubs and even on the lawn or porch.
However, it can be daunting to try and keep them on your property, especially if they stray into your garden.
