Fiber: This One’s for the Birds

It’s probably not something you think about every day – but our feathered friends need their fiber too.

In a recent article in HGTV Magazine, Stephen Kress – vice president for bird conservation at the National Audubon Society – said you have to fill your feeder properly.

Birds are energetic animals and need high calories options, so foods like bread and wheat in a bird feeder don’t cut it.

Instead, aim to fill your bird feeder with more nutritious options, such as:

  • Millet
  • Cracked corn
  • Black-oil sunflower seeds

For more information on how to stock your bird feeder, check out the National Audubon Society’s Bird Feeding Basics page.
