Birds use a lot of energy all year round. In winter to maintain temperature, and in spring to lay eggs and raise their young. And in the fall they build up reserves for the winter. So you can feed them all year round. Birds don’t stuff themselves when their hunger is satisfied. Nor do they forget to find food on their own.
The best way to feed your birds differs per season. In spring and summer, for example, birds mainly need protein-rich food, such as insects, mealworms, and caterpillars. In the autumn and winter, they actually benefit more from vitamins and fatty foods, such as berries, nuts, peanuts, and fat balls. You can buy high-quality food packages at pet shops, garden centers, web stores, and the Bird Protection, but you can of course also scatter (remnants of) your own food in the garden. Think, for example, of bread crumbs (to a limited extent), oatmeal, seeds, and fruit.
Spring: proteins and Calcium
During the spring, birds are busy: looking for mates, building nests, laying eggs, brooding, and raising young. And that whole process often twice in a row.
Insects, caterpillars, and worms are a source of protein. Birds go in search of this and they are normally widely available in the spring in a bird-friendly garden.
Many think that additional feeding of birds in the spring is not necessary, but even then food shortages can occur. When it rains and blows hard for two days, there are almost no insects to be found, so the birds can also use our help. It is less about fat and more about the proteins and calcium that birds normally get from insects.
For this purpose, go to the nearest Bird Store in Dubai to get some mealworms and 4-season bird food. Lime is in many natural foods. If you want to provide birds with extra calcium, you can give well-cooked and crushed eggshells. Never give milk!
Summer: protein-rich foods
In summer, a flat bowl of fresh water is vital. They drink and bathe in it. They also need a lot of protein-rich food. Birds start to molt and get the plumage that should protect them against the winter cold. Or that allows them to move south.
Birds themselves go in search of the worms and insects they need to get their portion of proteins. You can help them by attracting insects with flowering plants. Or by watering your lawn to lure the worms up.
Autumn: vitamin-rich berries
When it gets colder, the birds come closer to home. They are now actively looking for a place where there is something to be found even in the cold seasons. If you start feeding them now, you will soon have regulars for the winter. Many bird species now also eat the vitamin-rich berries from the shrubs in your garden.
Fat balls and peanuts are suitable for feeding birds at this time of year.
Winter: food and water
It takes birds a lot of energy in winter to maintain their body temperature at 40 degrees. On a cold night, smaller species sometimes lose 10 percent of their weight. They can use every extra: seed mixture, and fruit and as an extra energy source, you can hang fat balls and peanuts.
In case of light frost, you can offer fresh drinking water. Birds bathe in it too. This is not a problem: the water rolls off the greased springs, so it doesn’t freeze. As long as they find open water in nature, they may also find open water in the garden.
In very severe frost, it is better not to offer open (warm) water. They don’t really need the water now and shouldn’t bathe when it freezes so hard. If there is no snow to pick up, you can crush ice so they can pick up the ice splinters. Very cold in the stomach, so it takes energy, but it provides the fluid needed.
Do not give water with salt, because that is very unhealthy for birds. Also, do not put sugar in the water, because if they bathe in it, a sticky layer will form on their feathers.
