Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: Birds eat a variety of foods

Birds will eat almost anything. While bugs, seeds, fruits and nectar are common in their diets, more exotic fare is not unusual.
For example, honeyguides, a family of birds primarily from Africa, dine largely on beeswax.  
These birds are particularly thick-skinned, as protection against bee stings, and their digestion of beeswax is aided by special enzymes not found in other birds.
 The hoatzin is a leaf-eater, a food found in terrific quantities in its South American habitat.  
Some birds eat often.
