Just Don't Stop Feeding the Garden Birds
Monday, 16th March 2015
It is an old question, but it still gets asked: ‘When should I feed the birds?’
The answer is “always”. ‘Even in summer?’ Especially in summer. Summer is when there are most hungry mouths to feed. Youngsters who can barely fly, let alone be nimble enough to catch insects or to compete with the adults at the table or the feeder. What’s more, many of those adults will be parents who would really welcome some easy eating after the hectic job of bringing up a family. Added to which, there will be some pairs who are rearing a second brood and are burning up energy having to find food for both their offspring and for themselves. All of which means, don’t stop feeding in summer, feed more!
Quality pet food keeps a dog’s coat shiny. Quality bird food does the same for feathers.
