Where do bird go?

Where do bird go? Topic: Where do bird go?
April 19, 2019 / By Amabel
Question: Right now in Cleveland, it very windy, cold yet sunny and I oddly enough saw birds chirping around. I left some bread out for them. But in this bitter cold, how do they stay warm? I know they're not cave dwellers? Do they use buildings? Or huddle in trees? I never see them when it's raining...just a curiousity point. ok, title should be "BIRDS"...

Many birds migrate to warmer climates for the winter months. Some birds do not migrate and stay put year round. During a storm, they will find a tree, or bush and stay there during the wind, rain, etc. Or they will find a man-mad object, the eaves of a house, a barn, etc. to find shelter. Birds do not go to nests for shelter..they only build nests in the spring to reproduce, not to live in. Also, if you want to offer these birds food..give bird seed,suet, peanuts/peanut butter, etc., not bread. Bread is atually not a good diet for them although they will eat it. It is basically just empty calories and will not sustain them or give any nutrients.

Vortigern Originally Answered: Do I give my parakeet bird treat, millet, and bird seed?
Bird seed and treat mix both go in separate bowls. Water is yet another separate bowl. You can clip the millet to the side of the cage. Your parakeet also needs cuttlebone or mineral block for calcium. Buy these at the petstore and clip to the side of the cage. In addition, your parakeet needs to eat a well-balanced diet which includes fruits and veggies, to remain healthy. Broccoli, carrots, corn, peas, apples, banana, peaches, and grapes are some favorite fruits and veggies for budgies. You can serve them either raw or steamed (the veggies). Avoid giving your parakeet any toxic foods such as chocolate, raw potatoes, caffeine, high-salt foods, rhubarb, avocado. Here is a great website so you can learn more about parakeets/budgies: http://www.budgieplace.com

They roost where ever they can find shelter. During the winter they put on extra feathers for warmth. They have nests, and can find shelter under the eaves of house, and just where ever. Birds do have brains, and most are very smart. They can survive the cold.

They often use the same nests that they use through the summer months. You would be surprised of all the tiny spots they can get into, ie. rooflines, cracks in siding. Have you ever seen a small bird with its feathers puffed up, so it looks almost twice as fat? That adds air in between the layers of feathers and helps insulate them from the cold. Generally, they also stay huddled together in groups, sharing body heat.

If you lift their tiny wings, you will see they wear long johns. Actually, it's called "down" it keeps the cold air away from their bodies and holds in their body heat. This is where humans got the idea for down filled coats.

Hengist Originally Answered: I really want a bird :) Which one is a good starter bird? Budgie maybe?
To be honest, and I don't mean this in a mean way, but you should do your research for a couple of days before you even decide on getting a bird. It will save you A LOT of time, as there is a lot to know about budgies. If you want a tame friendly bird, you need to do a lot and spend a lot of time with it. You also need to be very patient and understand when taming it. Your petstore might already have tame ones, but you should practice taming at home and continue every day so that you can bond with your bird. Budgies are harder to care for than rabbits. (I had two lops and a dutch rabbit)They are also expensive to care for, so you might wanna reconsider. Budgies live for only about 5 years on seeds only. If you give them pellets (expensive) with fruits, veggies, and excerise, they will live for 10-15 years. :) I reccomend Lafebers Daily Parakeet Pellets and for the best seed mix use Kaytee's Fiesta Mix. They should eat 80% pellets 10% seed and 10% fruits and veggies. NEVER LEAVE TREATS LIKE SPRAY MILLET in the cage. They will get fat and eat it instead of their main diet. They just love it so much! Just use spray millet when you are taming them and when you are rewarding them. Please do not get a bird until you are sure you can spend an hour with them a day and pay all their expenses. They are a lot of work but a joy to have after weeks of spending time with them. You need a medium-big cage, not those small cheap ones. $40 A budgie $20 Pellet food monthly $9 Toys $10 a month Seed food monthly (A bag usually costs $9 but will last three months) $3 Treats $6 Time - 1 hour a day, 2 hours if you are taming it Yearly vet costs $50 BIRDS ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE. Trust me, my friend learned it the "hard way" and two weeks ago she said to me, "I should have listened to you." I was like "YEAH YOU SHOULD HAVE. Gosh." If they get enough sleep, excerise, good food, good lighting (don't put it in front of a window), lots of love from you, attention, toys, they will not be noisy and scream. If they need something they will scream. If they are happy they will chirp and when they are bonded to you they will call you when you try to leave the room. You will be part of their "flock."
