Fourth in a Series—Who Eats What
The Merlin Bird ID app lists 687 varieties of birds in the continental United States and Canada. We have tried to include many of the most popular birds that you may encounter in your backyard or during a walk in the park.
As you’ll notice, not all birds eat birdseed. We’ve included their dietary alternatives. We’ve grouped birds of the same family together—chickadees, sparrows, warblers, etc—because, in most cases, they have similar tastes in foods.
Please use this chart as a guide. And enjoy your backyard’s winged visitors.
