To Bread or NOT to Bread NEW
by: Celeste

Well!! This is the first I have heard that bread is no good for birds!! I am a novice at wild bird feeding. I live in the middle of the top of North Dakota, very very cold here. I started feeding wild birds last year as a way to amuse my elderly Kitty Kat at the bedroom window. I took slices of bread, and smeared peanut butter on them, then broke up each slice into the smallest bits I could with my fingers, This I tossed onto the ground for Kitty to amuse herself watching. This winter, I now have Seven bluebirds, nuthatches, woodpeckers and a small shadow-grey bird the size of the chickadee, no idea what it is, but they ALL seem to enjoy the peanutbuttery bread! I found this page of recipes to try new things for our hungry ones, this winter has been exceptionally rough. Glad to know that I am to mince the raisins. Didn't know that!!

wild bird feed NEW
by: Brook

Hello All, it sounds like you are enjoying your birds but I'd like to send you a word of caution. Birds can't digest flour products like bread, graham crackers, etc. so it bloats their tummies and they think they are full, then they don't eat the nutritional food that they need to survive the winter.

This recipe contains a lot of sugar too which only hummingbirds need. Please be very careful with fruit, use fruit that grows only in your area because OTHER FRUIT can be FATALLY TOXIC to local birds. Nuts are always good and a source of high protein for cold weather.
