Not for our birds. Some berries are higher in fat and energy, making them a better meal. On average a cedar waxwing consumes 228 dogwood berries a day. That would equal 184 pints of blueberries for an average human. Want to know about berries for birds? Head over to Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Everything will become berry clear.
Here At The Edge of the Wood we are disturbed about feathers being used in fashion. When you see a feather in a hat or braided into hair there is always a bird who has lost her life. Does fashion really need this? No. Leave the feathers to this red-tailed hawk and the fashion to creative innovators like Stella McCarthney. Beauty doesn’t have to mean misery any more.
