Porch Ponderings #2 - Birds of a Feather

I just came in from taking care of my flower garden and making sure the bird feeders were topped off.  As I worked and piddled around in nature's goodness, I started thinking about how each kind of bird has certain "taste buds" for what is palatable to them.

Some, like the Robins, peck at the ground for worms.  While others (the Cardinals, Finches, Tufted Titmouse, Chickadees, Mourning Doves, etc.) enjoy gathering around the feeder for seeds.

After some experience and research, I have learned that depending on the type of seed that I provide, I can draw in certain types of birds (which, in turn, keeps some away). I have also learned that there is a difference between getting "cheap" (yep, pun intended) filler seed vs. investing in the nicer wholesome seed that carries more nutrients.  

  • Some birds will eat anything that is out there for them.
  • Others are more picky about what they eat.
  • And, some absolutely refuse to eat the good stuff.

Hmm, it's almost sounding like I'm going somewhere with this.  :o)

We humans are very similar to how we choose to eat, aren't we?  Where are YOU in this above list? 

May I encourage you to begin to be more selective in what you choose to eat?  Perhaps flocking towards the nutritious foods rather than the cheap filler foods?  It's worth the investment!
