Re(5): Maybe not the best food for oriioles

In, there is an expert contributor who recommends against grape jelly. He argues that birds need the diet they have evolved to thrive on. Natural sugars are ok with 12 - 30 % sucrose. Grape jelly has about 50% sugar - clearly not ideal. In addition, it's addictive and therefore not good for them.

So, it is recommended that we crush real grapes into the mix to dilute the sucrose content. And we mustn't forget those yummy meal worms !!

We all want to help our feathered pals. so we must offer the right foods.
