Description

Want to attract the local wild birds to your garden? It’s a piece of cake! And a seed bell too! Simply lay out the welcome mat and they’ll fly on in.

The perfect gift for your bird-loving friend or garden lover, be they young or old, this pack will soon make the neighbourhood flocks feel welcome and right at home. Containing energy food for a boost and New Zealand-grown seed for ongoing nutrition, it provides a great dietary balance for happy and healthy wild birds.

1: Delivers a great mix of nutrition and energy to hungry birds

2: Scientifically unproven to work better if you loudly sing ‘I’m Like A Bird’ while hanging up the feeders

3: Hang the feeders up and watch for finches, wayeyes, sparrows and yellowhammer

4: Comes with a cool Feeding and NZ wild bird ID guide

Contains:
1 x Wild Bird Energy Cake (Peanut)
1 x Wild Bird seed bell
1 x Wild Bird Seed Cake Feeder
1 x Wild Bird Feeding and Identification Guide

Individual cakes are now in compostable film

Instructions for use: Place feeders and food well off the ground to keep birds safe from predators. It may take some time for the birds to recognise the new food items so be patient. Replenish food regularly and keep feeders clean.

FAQs

Where can commercially compostable packaging be processed in New Zealand?

A number of facilities around New Zealand accept commercially compostable packaging, and the list is growing.

  • Christchurch City Council Organics Processing Plant – Operated by Living Earth
  • Capital Compost – Wellington Southern Landfill
  • Revital - Central North Island including Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Taranaki
  • Palmerston North City Council (Awapuni Resource Recovery Park)
  • Hampton Organics – Hampton PARRC - Waikato
  • Envirofert Limited - Auckland & Waikato

An alternative is to find someone locally who makes “hot compost”. In this method of composting, the temperature of the heap rises to 55°C, just like a commercial facility. Our packaging will break down in a well-managed hot compost heap.
