From watching a variety of Songbirds and a variety of Finches to observing Grosbeaks, Nuthatches and Cardinals as they fly into your yard to feed or bathe, bird watching is a popular past time enjoyed by many. When it comes to attracting some of your favorite wild birds, it's important to use the food and bird suet that cater to the ones formulated for specific species. As various wild birds migrate throughout the year, many birders take the weather and season into consideration when determining which bird seed cakes and seed blends to use when filling their bird feeders. Unlike pet birds that live indoors and have a constant temperature year-round, wild birds must stay warm during the lower temperatures and cool during the higher temperatures. Suet cakes have been developed to aid in keeping wild birds warm during colder weather due to the higher amounts of fats and oils they contain. Often made using beef tallow, bird suet is meant to provide wild birds with the energy they need for their long flights, mating season as well as for nesting. Rich in nutrition, these bird seed cakes also make for delicious treats. Keep your favorite wild birds coming with various types of wild bird food and suet cakes.
