I like taking little lessons from birds. This guys conservation status is termed 'Least Concern', in other words its successful in this changing world.Its an Omnivore!
Omnivores (from Latin: omne all, everything; vorare to devour) are species that eat both plants and animals as their primary food source. They are opportunistic, feeders not specifically adapted to eat and digest either meat or plant material exclusively. Pigs are an example of an omnivore.
When the fishing is good the kiskadee eats fish, when their are a lot of bugs they eat bugs, when the trees fruit they eat fruit.
Not likely to starve to death :-)
Humans are omnivores.

There is a big guy living up at Birdland. I have watched him eating sea grapes and it is hilarious. He gets one in his mouth, tips his head up to swallow and if it is too big he lets it roll back down to the tip of his beak. He than slams it several times against the branch on which he is sitting. Then he starts the process all over. He does this until it is the right size to go down his throat and then he starts on another one. Iím sure he is responsible for distributing the seed in various places.

Thanks for the picture.

They are NOT little birds - quite large in fact.
