Franklin Lakes, NJ (PRWEB) October 4, 2007, 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, 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.

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.


Do you love watching birds and feeding them? Wondering what to put in the bird feeders? Birds could be herbivorous, carnivorous or omnivorous. Though most of them eat seeds, worms, plants, sap, berries, suet, nuts or meat, some are selective and will not touch all the available food. If you are a bird lover and love feeding them, you must identify the different types of birds and give them food that they might enjoy. Here is some information that might help you.

Dietary Habits of Birds

Well, there are many food items that might interest birds. While a large number of birds feed on flower nectar, berries, nuts, seeds, tree sap, buds of trees and shrubs, there are various species that eat insects/worms. Some of them hunt and eat small animals, while some scavenge on dead animals. Availability of food is an important factor in determining their eating habits. For instance, sparrows will eat seeds throughout the year, but if seeds are not available, they will eat worms. Birds need to eat more to keep themselves warm during winters. During this time, they are most likely to eat whatever is available. You could give them mealworms, seeds, corn, nuts and meat in winters. Here's some information on different types of food that will attract birds. Put these food items in the bird feeders and you will see a lot of birds visiting your garden.

Granivorous Birds

A good way to attract them would be to put seeds and grains in bird feeders. These birds have strong and stout beaks that help in crushing seed shells. In case you have birds like cardinals, chickadees and nuthatches coming to your garden, you could either put safflower seeds in the feeders or even spread it on the ground. You can even put different types of seeds such as millet, niger seeds and corn. If you often see sparrows, juncos and cardinals in your garden, you could give cracked corn, corn cobs or cornmeal mush. If you wish to keep finches as pets, you could give them grains and even some home-cooked food.

Nectivorous Birds

As the name suggests, nectivorous birds are birds that feed on nectar. They flit from flower to flower in search for nectar. These may even visit nectar feeders. If you wish to attract them, you could keep sugar water. Hummingbirds, sunbirds and honeycreepers are nectivores. Hummingbirds enjoy drinking sugar water. You could even add honey to water. This nectar recipe will certainly help in attracting them. Cardinals, finches, woodpeckers and chickadees will also keep coming back to your garden if you keep sugar water. Some of the nectivorous birds also eat insects.

Frugivorous Birds

Many birds enjoy eating fruits, so you could also keep sliced fruits. For cockatiels, you can keep a pellet based diet that includes fruits, vegetables and seeds. Parrots, channel billed cuckoos, fig birds, toucan, orioles, bowerbirds, and certain types of woodpeckers and doves enjoy having fruits. They have solid and deep beaks that help them to eat fruits. You can feed them fruits and berries that grow in your region. Raisins, grapes, pears, oranges, bananas, peaches and apple are some of the fruits that will attract fruit-eating birds. Do cut the fruits into small slices. You could also place specialized formula for frugivorous birds.

Insectivorous Birds

Many birds need live food. You could get mealworms from the pet stores for them. Swallows, warblers, flycatchers, kingfishers and lyrebird, catbirds, eastern bluebird, chickadees, nuthatches and certain types of woodpeckers are insectivores. Warblers are often referred to as generalists as their diet comprises a wide variety of insects. Woodpeckers, nuthatches and chickadees often feed on larvae or insects that are present in the crevices of the bark of the trees. Blackbirds, crows and bluebirds often feed on bugs, caterpillars or grubs on the ground. Swallows, swifts, warblers and flycatchers feed on flying insects.

Omnivorous Birds

The birds that eat insects, meat, seeds as well as fruit are placed in the category of omnivorous birds. Ducks, blue jays, woodpeckers, emu, crows and quails are examples of birds that eat worms, insects, insect larvae, meat, fruits and seeds. Certain types of finches feed on berries, seeds as well as insects. These birds practically eat anything that can be digested. They will eat anything ranging from nuts, suet, baked goods such as bread crumbs, crackers, pancakes, soaked dried fruit, meat, insects or other leftover kitchen scraps.

Carnivorous Birds

Birds that primarily eat meat are referred to as carnivores. These are also called birds of prey. Birds such as kites, falcons, hawks, vultures and eagles hunt and eat small mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. Some of them hunt and eat specific types of animals. For instance, sharp-skinned hawks have a specialized diet that mainly includes robins, warblers and sparrows whereas ospreys are fish-eaters. They may have different hunting habits. While some may capture their prey independently, some of them may hunt in groups. Some of them even snatch or steal their prey from other birds. Bald eagles and peregrine falcons are examples of such carnivorous birds.

If you are keen on finding out about different kinds of birds and their eating habits, you must also try to understand more about their anatomy. You might have seen many birds nibbling on seeds. Well, their cone-shaped beak makes it easier to eat hard seeds. Birds like finches, sparrows and cardinals use their thick beak to eat seeds. Some might also adapt to their environment. If you are a bird-lover, you can keep such food items in the feeders to attract several birds to your garden. This way birds will keep coming back for food and you can have a great time watching them.
