Do robins have different feeding habits from the other small garden birds like blue tits etc? I have tried everything but the robins don't seem to be able to feed from the fat balls on spirals very easily, nor are they eating the loose seeds in the hangers. I even bought a M&S apple hanger and that has remained untouched too. I watch my resident robin frequently flying up to the fat balls and hovering clumsily but not really feeding for any length of time. The tits love them and the loose seeds too but I cant think what to put out for the robins ?
