SOFTBILL BIRD FOOD

I am lucky that I am getting a lot of blackbirds and thrushes in my garden at the moment.

I’m putting some softbill bird mix near the small bush in the garden and on the  bird tables.  This attracts a flurry of blackbirds and thrushes hopping inside and around the bush (sorry I can’t get a photo that is good enough to put on here)

Softbill Birds are birds that have difficulty with the tough outer skins of most bird seeds.  Soft bill bird food mix is a blend of bird food which makes it easy for softbill birds to eat.

I also put out grated cheese and cut up apples.

Some softbill birds are

Blackbirds,  Thrushes,  Robins, Wagtails
