This summer, parents across the country will spend countless hours with their children, taking them to places they’ve never seen before. The same can be said for the millions of wild bird families that will be introducing their young fledglings to a whole new world of experiences.
People who only feed the birds during the winter miss out on many fun and fascinating wild bird "family" activities. By mid-spring and throughout much of the summer, fledglings leave the nest and continue to be fed by their parents, while also being taught to eat from feeders. Watching this fun and fascinating activity is one of the true payoffs of the bird feeding hobby.
Here are some characteristics and behaviors to look for when watching these fledgling birds as they begin to leave the nest:
Some foods are better than others for new fledglings. Insects are highly favored, so mealworms are attractive to parents feeding young. Jim’s Birdacious® Bark Butter® and Bark Butter Bits are also excellent as they are highly nutritious, easily carried, and easily swallowed.
It’s a perfect time to be seasonally savvy with your bird foods. Stop by the store and we'll help you pick out the the high protein and high fat foods that will help to get your neighborhood fledglings off to a strong start.
No need to buy food! Using only bananas & peels, the Humm-Bug is completely safe and all natural! In just a few days, you will have an unlimited supply of protein packed fruit flies your hummingbirds to enjoy!

This month as you are watching fledglings chase their parents, beg for food and learn the necessary skills to survive their new world, look for the presence , or absence, of father birds. Male bird roles differ greatly from one species to another.
Help your birds with high protein foods like mealworms, peanuts, Jims Birdacious Bark Butter and Suet.
Suet is available at a lot of stores. However, not all suet is created equal, and finding the best for your birds can be tricky if you just grab the least expensive option on the shelf. Look at all we do to provide your birds with the best, most nutritional suet.
Stop by the store to pick up some suet; your birds will know the difference. Try No Melt suet for those really hot days. Special binders mean that it wont drip like some other suets do.
Over 100 different species of birds have been attracted with Bark Butter. A nutritious, nutty treat for your birds. Plus, added calcium makes it an ideal food source for fledglings - great for bone development.
