    I have bought my 10 year old grandson a bird table for Christmas. He is home educated and is fascinated with the birds who have now started coming into our garden to the bird table.
    We have put out grated cheese, a coconut fat thingy, a fat ball and some bird nuts.
    Yesterday he read in his book that sunflower hearts are popular.
    The birds don’t seem to want the bird nuts and they have been left untouched.
    Can someone tell us why that is? Is it because the nuts are too large?

    Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great that your grandson likes feeding birds and is fascinated with them. There are so many sizes and colours aren’t there? Only certain birds like peanuts and if you aren’t getting that type of bird at your feeder then they won’t be eaten.

    Is the cheese being eaten? I bet it is.
    Sunflower hearts are really good enery food for birds.

    Lastly here is a link to soft bill bird food. some birds have beaks that can only eat certain food. Soft bill food helps these birds

    Hope that info helps you. I’m really pleased your grandson is enjoying watching birds

    There is a DVD of birdsong for sale at the end of this post about birdsong in my garden, in case your grandson would like to listen to some birdsong
