Is it still ok to feed dried fruit to birds bearing in mind the young

Posted: 15/03/2013 at 14:24

I have Wood Pigeons,  Collard Dove and Blackbird's mating here in part of the country,  often open the blinds to find the "at it" on the top of the fence,  not a very nice thing to see first thing on a morning

I've got mine in the kitchen in one of my plastic Gh's,  there's only myself and the cat and dog but they don't complain at least they have germinated this year  but it seems every one has ! so the more the merrier to prick out and pot on ho hum.

Probably got on quite well Bunny till we started to destroy the hedgerows and trees but I think some of them do enjoy the company of a human being,  I know I have a male Blackbird that I've called Charlie,  he comes and sit's on the fence when I 'm in the garden digging and sings his sweet song for me.

Ah but remember insects and catterpillars are a lot softer than dried fruit,

I have a little electric Tesco Chopper that I put the peanuts in and chop them up to bits was only about £7.00  and I do put dried fruit in as well,  I feed the birds 365 so there's always plenty of them about,  they do bring the chicks when they are fledging and feed them from the feeders be it fat ball feeders or seed,  like obelix I think if you feed them regularly they in turn do you the favour by eating the aphids and other  nasties in the garden

What's the weather like in your area?

The temperature got into double figures today a staggering 10.4c and lovely sun shine most of the day but still the cold Northerly wind if that would drop it would be nice and maybe dry the ground out again 

Bird box v bird feeding

The new box should be put on a North Facing wall as well so it's out the way of the sun according to the RSPB as the rays of the sun be it  morning or afternoon does have quite a lot of heat in it and therefore you could bake the eggs/chicks on anything other that a North wall
