Now people are encouraged to feed them bread again.
Feeding the ducks, geese, and swans have become a staple activity of people when they go visit the ponds in parks. We just love seeing them swarming towards the pieces of bread that we throw into the water.
But through the years, more and more ponds prohibited giving bread to these animals. They say it’s not good for them.
However, it was discovered later on that more swans and ducks have become critically underweight, or worse, died from starvation.
Now the birds are apparently suffering the effects of people not feeding them bread. There are claims that they are actually starving and dying due to lack of bread.
The posters read:
“Please feed us again, especially in the winter! Everyone has stopped feeding us because they wrongly think bread will make us poorly and now some of us are dying of starvation without your bread.
Yes, it’s not the healthiest for us but nothing in our bellies will kill us!”
This left people a little confused on whether to resume giving bread to the birds. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds clarified the whole thing and explained that while ducks, geese, and swans CAN digest all types of bread, too much can be a bad thing, since they will feel full without getting the essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that they need.
Also, they suggest healthier alternatives, such as defrosted frozen peas, porridge oats, sweet corn, and of course, bird feed.
He said that there’s no good reason to deny the bird their bread. He explained that swans have been eating bread for hundreds of years and the animals have not suffered any ill effects.
While bread may not be the best dietary option for these birds, it does serve as an important source of energy for them and acts as supplement to their natural diet. As long as the breads are not moldy, it’s perfectly all right to feed the swans bread.
