Raisins are widely used around the world either as fruits or cultural cooking, especially as deserts or add-on as deserts. But very few are aware that Raisin can be also good food for birds, wild-bird and even for pet birds. There are specific types of bird who prefers specific types of raisins such as sultana raisins and currants are particularly enjoyed by blackbirds, song thrushes and robins. On the contrary, raisins are not preferred for other domestic pets like dogs and cats so just to make caution information. While birds love this type of dried fruit and it is beneficial for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons is nutrition which helps birds during wintertime when other food sources are scarce.
Wild-birds and Raisins
Insects are the primary food for most of the wild-bird species. However, the fruit is favourite for many of the birds as raisins is considered to be the dried grapes. As the pet birds or garden birds are also related to wild birds. So the raisins are also eaten with pleasure by waxwings, starlings, robins, and many other species of birds. Raisins are an excellent source of minerals and vitamins as they are high in sugar and that helps birds with their needed energy to survive in winters. So to feed raisins into the winter seasons to complete their nutrition and to maintain the body heat which again helps them in their day to day activities and especially flying.
