High Energy Winter Bird Food
Friday, 15th December 2017
Our Autumn/Winter mix has extra oil and high-energy goodness for autumn and winter bird feeding. It contains tiny hulled seeds for smaller birds and is always popular during our annual bird food trials. It's ideal for Blackbirds, Robins, House Sparrows and all members of the tit family.
Haith's premium quality Sunflower Hearts herald from European seeds - unlike many other sunflower hearts on the market (which could come from South America, China, and North America). We purchase quality sunflowers to reduce the carbon (and product degradation) involved in shipping.
Sunflower Hearts appeal to so many garden birds – no wonder they’ve overtaken peanuts as the number one garden bird food of choice. They’re worshipped by Goldfinches who, in some parts of the UK, prefer them to Niger Seed. We're unsure why some charms of Goldfinch seem perfectly happy to feed on sunflowers rather than Niger Seed and vice versa. It's one of life's mysteries. Our best guess is that some birds instinctively understand that Niger also has tonic properties - something bird-keepers have known for many years.
We've been providing high-quality bird food for garden birds since 1937. Cheap wildlife food can be full of dust, debris and waste husk and is harmful to birds. Our super clean high-quality seed makes for happy and healthy birds. Therefore, whichever mix you pick, you and your garden birds are safe with Haith's.
Have a lovely Christmas and super New Year.
