Is Peanut Butter Okay for Birds?
Is it safe to feed peanut butter to birds?
—Frank Pellerin, Edmonton, Alberta
George: Yes, peanut butter is safe for birds. It's a misconception that birds will choke on it. In fact, peanut butter is a nourishing food, and many species of backyard birds flock to this snack. However, many people are still concerned, even after I assure them peanut butter is safe. So I recommend mixing peanut butter with cornmeal for a high-energy treat.
