Unusual Food Choices For The Birds

You can attract a variety of backyard birds with these common kitchen foods.  You don't have to buy them just for the birds, you can give them leftovers.  We eat a lot of apples from August through April and I cut mine by making 4 slices around the core, leaving behind a square core which I can break in half and toss out for the birds.

In the winter I try to share a bit more since it helps the wildlife even more.  It's amazing how many critters enjoy banana peels.  Only in winter though ... they have more favorite choices in good weather I guess, because they don't consume them when it's warm.

Here's a few ideas ....


Biggest fans: Eastern bluebird, pine grosbeak, gray catbird, northern cardinal, northern flicker, American robin, scarlet tanager, cedar waxwing and red-bellied woodpecker.

Serving suggestion: Slice them up and remove the seeds.


Biggest fans: Northern cardinal, gray catbird, gray jay, scarlet tanager.

Serving suggestion: Remove the peel and cut in half lengthwise.

Cooked pasta and rice

Biggest fans: Blue jay, brown thrasher, tufted titmouse, red-bellied woodpecker.

Serving suggestion: Serve both plain, and chop pasta into little bits to make it easier to eat.
