Wheat bread over white bread?

Yahoo, the warm weather is back which means, back to flip flops and shorts. The wind is still carrying on as if it doesn’t ever want to leave Florida, and is confused with the location of Chicago. Even the birds in the back-yard didn’t seem to enjoy the extra wind, and looked at me with the expression of, “Just keep the bread rolling out onto the grass, we will be fine.” Since the wheat bread has seeds on the edge, they prefer wheat over white bread. Some of the birds will pick up a piece of the white bread, and throw it back down looking for that one piece that just might be better.

I didn't know birds could be picky eaters. Are you feeding a generation of yuppie birds who demand gourmet bread?

Or just birds who know an ole softy when they spy one ...

The yuppie birds are eating Healthy Multi-Grain bread with eleven grains per slice by Arnold. When the wheat bread slices run low towards the end of the week; then out comes the white breads for the birds. The rest of the family deserves the best wheat bread for their lunches. The white bread is cheaper for the birds to eat, and I didn’t think they would notice the difference. When we ran out of white bread, we switched to the wheat bread for a short time. This is how is all began.

We also feed birds in our front yard. They get wild birdseed. No bread. Just seeds and water which they share with the squirrels. Maybe they think the squirrels have eaten all the 7 grain-bread and have left the seeds.? Every week or so we're forced to blow the chaff off the sidewalk!

We did feed the birds birdseed from Publix for about a year, and the volume of birds that arrived in our backyard was out of hand. We had over a hundred birds in our back yard every morning which were mostly pigeons. The birds started to shove each other for the seed at a quick pace which did cause a few injuries. We stopped feeding the birds for a while, and then I started using bread for the Blue Jays, Sparrows, and Woodpeckers.
