What do birds eat? Carbs, protein and fat. The same as us.
Again, I started photographing birds in the backyard. The omniverous Northern Mockingbirds who were nesting in our yard were almost constantly bringing food to their two juveniles. Berries and insects provided carbs, protein and (probably) fat.
We all know that many birds eat acorns, which are rich in protein, carbs and fat. They also have several minerals as well as niacin.
Below is a gallery of seed, fish and grass eating birds. You’ll note the (not clever) disguise worn by one bird. (Click on a picture for a closeup.)
The next gallery—of raptors and their meals— is not for the squeamish. Scroll on past if necessary. (Click on a picture for a closeup.)
I’ll finish up the Evolution of My Bird Photography series in the next post where I’ll document some interaction among birds — and other animals.
