What is apple suet bird food?

Apple suet is a favoured choice for bird feeders as it provides a rich energy source that aids birds in maintaining their body heat and energy levels, particularly during colder months when other food sources may be scarce. Apple Suet is also an excellent choice of bird feed to use during the spring and summer, when nesting season is underway, and birds and their fledglings need extra energy. The primary component, suet, is a dense, nutrient-rich fat, which serves as an excellent energy source for birds, helping them sustain their body heat and energy levels. The addition of apples offers essential vitamins, minerals, and natural sugars.

Apples are often associated with certain seasons, making apple suet pellets particularly attractive during times when fresh apples may not be readily available in the environment. This seasonal appeal can encourage birds to repeatedly visit your garden to get their apple fix!
