What to feed a fledgling

Whilst it's a common misconception that small birds can't judge the size of their meal and can choke on large pieces of food, it's always a good idea to minimise this risk entirely by offering small seeds or suet products that can be pecked at. Our Fledgling Bundle contains all the food fledglings require for easy consumption and the necessary protein and nutrition to help them grow into strong, healthy adults. Below you will find a list of all the fledgling essential food which is included in this bundle, plus other accessories for feeding. 


This bundle contains:

2kg Peanut Granules (RRP £6.95)

2kg Sunflower Chips (RRP £5.95)

2kg Mini Suet Pellets Insect & Mealworm (RRP £6.25)

1 Henry Bell Essentials Seed Feeder (RRP £3.95)

1 Ready Peck Storage Bucket (RRP £2.65)

TOTAL VALUE £25.75 (RRP prices as of May 2022)


How to feed a fledgling

Once the fledgling leaves the nest, its parents will continue to feed it until it's learnt to do so on its own. One way you can help them is by placing fledgling friendly food in ground feeders. Though fledglings are unable to fly in its first weeks of leaving the nest, they can still hop around and perch. So a ground feeder will give them easy access to hop into. Feeders with perches are also a great way of dispensing food to fledglings, which is why we've included one in this bundle!


What to do with fledgling bird

It's absolutely normal to see a fledgling bird on its own as its parents could be scouting for food or they're out of sight in a nearby tree or bush. However, if the fledgling is in a position of danger, you may need to intervene and move it to a safer place. If it's more than two hours since the parents have returned to the fledgling (whether you have moved it or not), you should contact a local wildlife rescue centre or vet
