Bird Care

birdfeeder front view with birds Birds have front limbs, which are modified into wings. Their bodies are covered in feathers and feet have scales. Birds are warm-blooded animals, which mean they burn energy to keep their body temperature at the same level. Different birds will have an eye for different types of seeds. Finches, for example, love nyjer seed. The seeds are high in calories and have high oil content, which make nyjer seed a high-energy food source for smaller birds.
