The kibbled (coarsely ground) peanuts are rich in essential oils and proteins, and, being small in size, can be safely offered to birds all year round. (Whole peanuts offered may, very occasionally, be taken by inexperienced blue and great tits during the nesting season and offered to very young chicks in the nest, creating a choking hazard).
Kibbled Peanuts are loved by a wide range of species, including:
Great-spotted Woodpecker, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, Long-tailed tit, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Brambling, Robin, Blackbird, Dunnock, House Sparrow, Nuthatch, Collared Dove.
Sunflower hearts are an extremely popular food with a very wide variety of bird species. High in essential oils and calories and easy to manage by almost all species likely to visit the garden. These include the ‘softbill’ species such as robins and blackbirds which are unable to crack open the husks of black sunflower seeds. They are a particular favourite for goldfinch, siskin and greenfinch. Birds eat the entire seed heart (some, like greenfinch may discard the very fine membrane that shrouds each seed) so produce very little mess.
Other species which love and thrive on sunflower hearts include:
Great-spotted Woodpecker, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, Long-tailed tit, Goldfinch, Siskin, Redpoll, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Brambling, Robin, Blackbird, Dunnock, House Sparrow, Nuthatch
