Birds can be fed throughout the year. There are differences in what you can feed and when.
Birds are busy in the spring: very busy! First they must find a partner, then a living space, that must be furnished, lay eggs, breed and raise their young. This will often happen more than once. Birds go in search of insects, caterpillars and worms in the spring as they provide a source of protein. If the weather is bad in the spring, it will be difficult for birds to find enough insects and caterpillars. The 4-season food is therefore ideally suited to feed, such as the bird snack FB838, raisins FB832 and the 4-season fat block.
During summer, birds need protein-rich food in particular. They moult and get a new coat. During this time, birds mainly eat insects. To attract many insects to the garden, different seed mixtures are available, such as the bird-attracting flowers mixture. The mealworms are also a good addition.
As it gets colder during the fall, birds will often look for berries in gardens. If the birds also find suet balls or other food, they will continue to visit the garden. There are different feeding systems that are suitable for different bird species. In these feeding systems, the food remains dry and cannot become contaminated. The suet ball dispenser and the feeding silo are good examples of this.
In the winter, birds need more fat to keep themselves at the right temperature. The body temperature of a bird is 40 degrees Celsius and they can lose 10% of their body weight during a cold night. In the winter, suet balls, bird peanut butter and peanuts are very suitable for feeding due to the high fat content.

The different types of peanut butter can also be supplied in a display. Displays are available where a peanut butter house is offered together with the peanut butter. This makes the choice even easier for the consumer.
