Your Florida Backyard NSiS Home Page Your Florida Backyard Insect-eating Birds
Birds catch insects in midair and forage for them on tree bark, leaves, twigs, and stems, and in leaf litter. Insects attracted to necklace pod and coffee colubrina attract many insect-eating birds. Some insect-eaters will visit feeders for suet and peanut butter mixtures.
Many birds who do not typically eat insects as adults feed them to their young because insects provide more nutrition for growth.
