Would you like to do more to look after your local wild birds? This great giveaway from Happy Beaks will help you provide a feast for your feathered friends this autumn.
Why is it important to feed wild birds?
As the seasons shift towards shorter days and colder temperatures, it’s harder for wild birds to find food. By the time winter arrives, natural sources of food such as berries and insects are pretty scarce. Combine this with the fact that birds need lots of energy-rich food to maintain fat reserves during colder months, and you can see why it’s a great idea to provide bird food in your garden at this time of year.
As well as helping your local wild birds to thrive and making your garden more wildlife friendly, providing a source of food will also mean you can enjoy spotting lots of bird visitors in your garden. This is a nice way to get kids interested in nature, and an ideal prompt to spend time outdoors in autumn and winter.
Quality bird food from Happy Beaks
Happy Beaks supply a really comprehensive range of high quality bird food and feeding accessories. The range covers everything you need to keep your local wild birds well-fed, from individual seed bags, seed mixes and suet products to feeders. I really like the fact that you can choose from a range of sizes on all their bird food, this means you can easily find a quantity that suits the size of your garden and your bird feeders.
You can check out the full range of Happy Beaks products here.
Here’s some more information on each item in the prize bundle.
Kingfisher wooden garden bird table
Offering a variety of feeds is an easy way to attract lots of different types of wild bird to your garden, and this traditional wooden bird table allows you to do this all in one place. It’s ideal if your garden doesn’t have trees or other hanging space for feeders, and it’s free-standing so it can be moved around easily.
Peanut splits 12.75kg bag
Peanuts are rich in protein, fat and fibre, so they make an excellent high-energy snack for birds. Providing split peanuts means birds don’t have to break them up, which allows them to feed more quickly, and also makes it easier and safer for smaller birds to join in with the feast. Peanuts are also a fantastic ingredient for homemade bird feeders, which are lots of fun for kids to make.
Mealworms 500g bag
No, they’re not pretty, but birds absolutely love them! Dried mealworms provide birds with a high-energy, high protein snack, and they’re also a great way to help parents keep ever-hungry baby birds happy.
Sunflower hearts 5kg bag
Birds of all shapes and sizes will love to find sunflower hearts in your feeders. The fact that these have had the husks removed means there’s very little in the way of mess, so this is a good option for a low-maintenance feeding station.
What a great selection of bird feeding supplies – your local feathered friends would definitely be spoilt for choice! Which varieties of wild birds would you love to tempt into your garden with this bundle?
