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:
- Cracked corn
- Black-oil sunflower seeds
