A lot of people like to feed birds this time of year, but you have to feed them the right stuff…bird feed. It’s not unusual for people to put out bread but that’s really not good for them.

Bread can go stale in backyard feeders and leftover bake goods may actually do more harm than good. Bread molds fast outdoors which can cause a whole slew of illnesses because bread doesn’t offer proper nutrition.

. The majority of calories from bread are from carbohydrates. With too many carbs and not enough fats and proteins, their bodies rely on their own body fat. Fats and proteins come from seeds, nuts or insects that they need for survival.

You can feed bread just make sure it’s an amount that the birds will eat in a day and never leave bread out. Bird feed is best though.
