Further, unless its relatively low gluten and wholegrain bread, it's not particularly beneficial to birds even when fresh. Gluten (such as found in strong white flour) drains your energy levels even if you don't have allergy issues with it.
Thank you very much for the advisory; can I generally trust the pet stores to provide birdseed that is safe and nutritional?? As you know from your time here, our country has a problem in re poor treatment of animals, such as forcing dogs to stand on guard duty on metal roofs in the summertime.As you've also surely seen, bird-feeders and -baths are practically non-existent, but I intend to stand against that tidal wave of indifference by having a feeder driven into the ground out front very soon.Not sure if I can find a typical bath basin yet I can improvise, if necessary........People will think I'm crazy(insert comment HERE__________), cuz I'll be the only person across five zip codes who has either of those items
