I’ve been asked if birds like fruit – especially apples. Here is my reply.
Indeed birds do like fruit – and berries.
Birds will eat apples and other fruit.
You should cut them up into small pieces.
Give the birds a chance to find the apple – they may be unsure at first.
You could put the apple next to the bird food. slice it small.
Do not feed fruit pips or apple seeds
Blackbirds will eat worms, spiders, fruit and seeds – so you see many birds have a varied diet.
Bruised apples, pears and other fruit are very popular with all thrushes, tits and starlings. Cut them up and leave them on the bird table or on the ground.
Another way to feed birds is to plant a fruit bush or a hedge such as a hawthorn hedge that has berries. It is long term, but the fruit / berries come every year and feed many birds every year
Birds also eat many kitchen scraps
Blackbirds and other birds also like cheese –
