Ominvores, carnivores, or herbivores—which are birds?

A bird may be a carnivore, omnivore, or herbivore, depending on the species. Small birds with beaks designed for cracking nuts are more likely to be herbivores than larger birds with pointed talons.

There are around 10,000 species of birds that are now alive, and they range from meat eaters to only plant eaters. Only flesh, typically from small animals and other smaller birds, is consumed by carnivores. The carnivorous bird species include owls, eagles, hawks, and falcons.

The omnivores consume both meat and vegetation, while the meat is most frequently derived from worms and small insects. Ostriches, chickens, and robins are examples of omnivorous bird species.

Only plants are consumed by a herbivore, however for birds, this typically implies fruits, berries, nuts, and seeds. Birds that eat just plants include parakeets, cockatoos, and macaws.
