What does the birds pick from the grounds?

I was always curious about it.

Do they pick some minerals from the ground? What CAN they pick from an asphalt road? If so, how can they sense it if it's so tiny? Or is it just useless habit?

To me it looks like random picking, especially with pigeons They just take it in whatever they pick, like some trash bin

Re: What does the birds pick from the grounds?

I mean..isn't eating insects enough? Salt? Vitamin? What kind of mineral? How do they sense it? Can they determine that minuscule speck is what they need by sight? Or do they just peck all the way in the hope of getting necessary nutrients We need an expert!

Re: What does the birds pick from the grounds?

Birds peck the ground to create vibrations and sounds that force critters like worms and insects out of it so that they can eat them. They pick the asphalt because they can't tell it's not dirt.

I received a bad reputation for my persistent curiosity

Any ornithologist here?

Would that James Bond or AlanBrooke were alive
