When feeding the birds it can often leave us curious and frustrated when one feeder seems to be emptied everyday, whilst another remains unvisited. Garden birds much like human each have their own tastes, and this means that what a House Sparrow may love, a Robin would ignore. There isn’t much we can do about birds’ personal taste, so aim to offer as many food types as possible to attract many different species. In time a new bird food might attract a new bird species! If you want to offer a selection of bird foods we recommend using a bird feeding station such as the Tom Chambers Deluxe Bird Feeding Station. Please note the feeders are sold separately.
The quality of the bird food is also important when wondering why birds aren’t eating. In order to maximise freshness bird food must be stored correctly in a cool, airtight container. When not stored properly food will go off, and birds will instead go in search of something fresher.
