If you're an avid bird-watcher, enjoy feeding birds or simply love to attract birds to your garden, suet bird food should be a staple in your bird-feeding arsenal. Suet is a type of animal fat that is a high energy food and perfect for providing birds with the fuel they need to survive year round.
This is especially important during the colder months when natural sources of nourishment, such as insects and berries are scarce. Consequently birds need a reliable source of nutrition to keep them warm and healthy.
Birds love suet balls, suet feed, suet cakes, suet blocks and other mixed foods, so you could find that by adding these to your feeders, you'll attract many wild bird species.
Why is Suet Important for Wild Birds?
Suet is an essential food source for garden birds, providing them with the energy they need to survive and thrive.
This high-energy foods are especially important during the winter months when natural sources of foods are scarce, however they also enjoy suet feed and suet blocks during the warmer months too.
Without a reliable source of nutrition, birds are unable to generate enough heat to keep themselves warm, putting their health and survival at risk.
Suet for birds is also an excellent source of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, making it a well-rounded food choice for birds. In fact, many bird species, including blue tits, woodpeckers and other common garden birds, prefer suet over other bird food options.
How to Offer Suet For Birds
Offering suet to birds is easy and convenient, with many options available to suit your needs and preferences. Here are a few options to consider:
Suet Balls: Suet fat balls are small, compact balls of suet, nuts and seeds that are easy to handle and can be hung from bird tables, tall feeder or other feeding station. They also offer exceptional value

Blocks: Suet blocks are larger than balls and pellets, and are designed to be placed directly on a bird table or feeding station. These blocks are a great choice for those who prefer to offer a more substantial amount of healthy fats.
