Spring and Summer are the seasons for breeding for our garden birds. The first spring clutch is critical to the overall population of garden birds and the right food available in all weathers is vital.
Breeding birds use considerable energy above their normal levels, singing and attracting mates, nest building, finding and protecting nesting sites. Then the real work begins as the female needs lots of additional calcium to lay hard shelled viable eggs usually at the rate of one a day! Adult feeding time becomes restricted as brooding eggs and later feeding young take priority. They need an easy to find, reliable source of food to keep themselves fit enough to provide for their growing family.
Ark Summer Support Mix has been specifically blended to provide the extra protein and calcium birds need at this time of year, along with plenty of carbohydrates to give them the energy they need to forage for their young. By feeding Ark Summer Support Bird Food liberally during early spring and summer, on the bird table or on the ground, you give your garden birds the best prospects of breeding and fledging successfully.
This bird food is suitable for use on bird tables and for ground feeding.
