There is little nicer than waking up and hearing happy birds in your back garden, or looking through the window during the day and seeing birds coming and going. The way that you can help ensure this is to make sure your garden is well stocked with a range of tasty bird food treats.
When we think of bird food we usually think of just bird seeds or even just plain slices of bread. However if you start to look online for wild bird food you'll see that actually there is a massive range of different bird foods that are available and easy to source.
For example you could buy insects such as meal worms which are loved by a variety of wild birds including robins or you could go for fat balls which attract a large variety of birds. Of course you can still go for bird seeds, but don't limit yourself because there are lots of different types of seeds available that are suitable for birds. Sunflower seeds are a popular choice as are thistle seeds which are loved by gold finches.
You can also get ready made mixes of bird food made up. These come in a large bag and are ideal for ground and table top feeding. As they are ready mixed they are easy to deal with and attract a large number of different birds.
What it may be worth doing is looking at what birds are popular or living in your area. That way you can make sure you buy the right type of bird seeds for your area. By doing this you help ensure that your garden is always full and alive with birds.
If you don't know where to buy bird food from then shop online and get it sent to your house through the post. That way you don't have to worry about how to get it home or even where to buy it from. It gets delivered direct to your door and usually takes just a couple of days to arrive. You can then buy a number of different types if you want too, until you work out what works best in your garden.
