Care For Birds This Winter
Here at Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we don’t just care about the animals in our homes. Dedicated to helping all creatures great and small, we are doing our bit to help Mother Nature and her wildlife this winter.
As the world becomes more and more observant about how we can do our bit to help the wildlife around our homes, we can make small changes to our glorious gardens to keep creatures safe and snuggly as the winter weather torments our British shores. So when it comes to caring for creatures, there is one feathery kind that we all can take care of this Christmas.
Birds of a Feather
Yes, it’s birds! Flocking around our gardens and homes during the wintery weather, creating an ideal feeding place for these wonderful creatures can be beneficial to both you and the birds. With just some simple ingredients, a bird feeder can bring an array of species to your garden leaving you feeling as if you’re watching an episode of BBC’s Countryfile.
Due to their demanding appetites, birds require a consistent supply of food that is both easily located and consumed. Feeders can prevent birds from needing to forage and expending energy to feed their young. If they become familiar with an easy to reach feeding ground, they inevitably use less time and energy to feed their young, giving them energy to be utilised elsewhere.
Furthermore, some bird populations can even consume up to 35% of their own body weight thus the need to easily access food in the winter months is more important than ever. With food supply significantly less in winter for our wildlife, giving a helping hand to our feathery friends can be more beneficial than we can imagine.
Bird feeders are not only beneficial to birds but can also have benefits for the owners of them. With the feeders attracting many different species of bird to your land, it gives you the chance to relax and enjoy nature right from the comfort of your garden window.
