SQUARE ODDS – HOW TO EAT SEEDS. LESSONS FROM A RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER

The Square Odds – February 2022

Have I mentioned that birds are messy? Birds are ridiculously messy. They toss seeds all over the place and poop on top of them. Then, they eat them anyway. They seem to have absolutely no concern about where they go, including on their food. I don’t want to know what their nests look like.

And when you’ve checked everything, throw those seeds around!

Ick, yuck. Love them though I do, it’s hard not to be occasionally put off by the filth. It’s amazing any of their babies survive the mess.

Toss those seeds! That’s the joy of being a bird.
