Franklin Lakes, NJ (PRWEB) October 4, 2007

http://www.GetPetSavvy.com, the Ferrisi Worldwide website, offering high quality pet food and pet supplies like grooming tools, toys, sleeping bags and much more, provides bird products and supplies for all species of pet birds. The site also presents a wide range of dog products, cat products, dog and cat food, fish supplies and small animal products.

President Neil Ferraiolo shares more about the bird products GetPetSavvy offers, "Birds are popular pets due their tenderness and sweetness, not to mention their adorable looks. However, if these delicate creatures are not taken care of properly, their end comes faster than naturally anticipated. You should provide your feathered friends with the requisite bird supplies and bird products. Our bird supplies are designed by pet professionals who have taken the utmost care in creating them. We have everything from beddings and perches to feeders and watering systems."

Birds require a lot of care. The products and food for all bird species are different and it is imperative to use species-specific bird food and supplies. When it comes to bird food, it is important to remember that not all bird eat seeds. Diets for non-seed eating birds such as Lories and Lorikeets consist of a commercially prepared formula.

Even for seed-eating birds, seeds alone do not constitute a proper diet. Even when multiple types of seed are offered, the seed-only diet will not supply the necessary array of vitamins and minerals that are needed for optimal health. Before buying bird food, a thorough knowledge of the species should be gained, and it must be purchased from a manufacturer well versed in the field.

Bird supplies include cages, cage kits, birdbaths, perches, bird toys, bird carriers and bird grooming products. Bird supplies can be further divided into -- pet bird supplies and wild bird supplies. Wild bird supplies are for those who do not have a pet bird but are bird lovers or bird watchers and want to turn their home into a place for wild birds to visit.

Providing more information about the wild bird supplies offered, Mr. Ferraiolo says, "While we are dedicated to offering pet bird products, we are equally committed to our wild bird supplies. If you are a bird lover, you have to invest in wild bird supplies and create a welcoming space for the wild birds to visit. We have stocked all kinds of wild bird supplies. You will find quality bird nesting boxes, wild bird nesting supplies and other bird products."

"With our pet food and pet supplies, you can be sure that your pet is in safe hands. When you turn to http://www.GetPetSavvy.com, you can be rest assured that your pet's best interests are taken care of. We are always here to assure you that you and your pet have a friend online, who is ever-ready to help. If you do not find what you are looking for, contact us and we will get back to you quickly," he concludes.

Is there evidence that feeding birds in your backyard will lead to bird death? Some think that once birds rely on your feed, they will not be capable of gaining their own food, especially during hard times such as winter.

Some feel that birds will rely on the food provided by you and that they will lose their ability to find their own food. Other experts think that our feathered friends are much more resilient and will discover new sources of food if the feeder repeatedly is empty and they can't support themselves or their young.

As reported in Bird Watcher's Digest, researchers Margaret Brittingham and Stanley Temple found that black-capped chickadees take, on average, only 20-25% of their winter food requirements from feeders. But, they also demonstrated a significant correlation between an individual bird's ability to survive the winter and the use of bird feeders.

Evidence shows that aves that eat food provided by humans through feeders had an annual (not just winter) survival rate that is 8% higher (up to 95% from 87%) than those birds that don't eat food provided by humans. For winter (as opposed to month-to-month), 69% of the feeder using birds survived the winter where only 37% of wild non-feeder using birds survived the winter.

If more wild birds survive the winter when we feed them, what are the implications? In simple terms, it means that without our help, a higher number of birds fail to survive the winter. If we help, more birds will survive. Curiously, even though our food supply will decrease the winter death rate, our avian friends will not completely rely on us. If your bird feeders are consistently empty, these amazing animals will almost always take flight to find another source of food on their own. You will also notice that in the spring, when food abounds, the birds are not as active at the feeders as they are in the winter when food is harder to find.

We can only suspect that different birds, like people, have different levels of dependence. However, the truth is that our avian friends will adapt. If one fails to continue a consistent feeding program, the birds will adapt and search for food.

I recommend that if you start a bird feeding program, stay consistent. It is best if you fill the feeders at the same time every day or whatever interval you need and ensure that the feeders do not stay empty for extended periods. For really great public information about bird feeding, go to

Also, if you plan to go on vacation or holiday, plan for your absence. If you will be gone for a short time (a few days), overfill your feeder and spread some on the ground around trees or bushes near your feeders. If you are going to be gone for an extended time, ask your friends, neighbors, or relatives to check and fill your feeders on a consistent basis.

As for winter feeding, it is more serious. Some bird populations may not migrate to areas of higher food availability if there is a reliable source near their summer habitats. Thus, if you feed birds on a consistent basis over the spring and summer, it is important that you are extremely consistent in the winter, when some species may rely on your food to survive.

To make a long story short, it is better for survival rates if you feed wild birds in your yard. But if you decide to feed them, it is ideal if you are consistent in your feeding.

Choosing to have a bird as a pet can sometimes be more of a challenge that having a four legged pet, like a dog or a cat. This is because each species of bird has special, unique requirements which have to be satisfied in order to ensure its well-being and that it stays in good health. While most birds eat seeds, some of them only eat certain types of seeds, which is why we also need to be careful when purchasing bird food and other bird supplies.

Birds make for great companions as many of them enjoy having close contact with their owners. They are quite social and, as such, feel the need to express their friendship, which they usually do by talking or vocalizing. Once they have bonded to their owners they enjoy joining in their activities. This means that we can expect them to eat at the same time that we do, as well as nap with us, and even more. However, if we would like to get a bird as a pet, we should know that it's not going to be all smooth sailing. The fact is that birds need to be trained before they can start viewing us as members of their flock. Of course, there are more important issues that we need to consider before training. We will need a premium bird food like Harrison's organic or roudybush pellets, which provide a balanced diet, so that they're happy and healthy. We'll also need bird supplies, among which the most important is the actual bird cage or parrot cage.

As a home for our bird we can choose between a bird cage and an aviary, or bird stand, depending on how much space the bird requires to have or on how many bird species we would like to get. It's usually better to start off with just one bird as it will be easier to train, and if you haven't had birds as pets before, you'll need some time to get accustomed to their behaviors. It is important that we provide our birds with an environment where they can exercise, so that means that we should try to either get them a big bird cage or bird aviary, or to provide them with the space where they can play and exercise. Of course, we shouldn't forget to install bird feeders in the cage where we will place the bird food and the water. We'll also need other bird supplies, like bird perches and bird toys.

It is very important to learn everything we can about keeping birds and parrots, in order to find out what makes them happy and how to keep them healthy. Purchasing high quality premium bird food and bird supplies is the only way in which we can make sure that we're providing our pets with everything that they need. Regardless of where we live, we won't have to worry about finding everything at the local pet shop. There are many companies that advertise and sell their products online, and we can easily find one that will deliver what we need right to our door. Buying bird supplies online is easy, taking just a few clicks, and we can do it while uploading the clips of our favorite feathered friends on the web.
