Change of Feeding Habits ?

Can anyone explain why the small birds in my garden, tits and finches, seem to have changed their feeding habits from normally devouring my seed mix to now homing in on the nut feeders, even though my seed feeders are alongside. This has only happened over the last 2 or 3 weeks.
  • Maybe they need the protein & oil to regain good health after raising their young then moulting!

    Hello David, l can't say that I have noticed our birds doing this, they feed from the seed, nuts, Niger seed and sunflower hearts. Maybe it is that they need extra goodness from the peanuts after rearing their young.
