DRY CAT FOOD FOR BIRDS?
(st peters missouri)
I hope this is not ultimately bad for wild birds but for the last ten + years I've been feeding wild birds with fairly inexpensive generic dry cat food that I also feed my 2 cats. I've been doing this throughout the year but more so in the winter months. Blue jays, Robins, Cardinals as well as starlings all seem to love it (and the squirrels too!). I first noticed the birds stealing the dry cat food that I had put outside for the occasional stray cats in the neighborhood.
BUT if this is ultimately a bad idea by all means let me know!
Pascal, offhand, I can't think of any reason why this would be bad for birds.
