Bulk buying bird food!

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

When you start to feed the birds you’ll really enjoy all the visits. When you have lots of birds visiting though you need to check the feeders during the day as they can easily empty them. I’ve got a gang of sparrows who are doing really well at the moment but they’re eating tons of seed. I filled the seed feeder up twice yesterday. I think it’s because the babies are all learning to use the feeders too so there’s more birds than ever before.
To ensure it doesn’t get too pricey you need to buy your bird seed in bulk! You can always share it with a neighbour to half the costs – or buy a mix of seeds and share that so you can attract different types.

You can also start to make your own fat balls using bird seed too.

Garden Bird have some great bulk buys.

How to make a mealworm feeder and grow your own mealworms!

Full instructions!

Robins and other small birds will love eating meal worms. To be very honest I’m not sure my other half would let me use the garage for this – but it’d be something for the braver of you to think about!

This site also have a range of photos and info about his bird boxes over the last few years. It’s very interesting!
