Tastes Like Spaghetti

Nature shows us every day that wild birds are fascinated by wild worms.

They are delicious. Plump. Squishy. High on the “favorite foods” list.

But what about domestic birds and domestic….worms?

Being fascinated by all things scientific (in a totally non-scientific way of course) I set out to discover how strong the evolutionary link is between pale white, round, soft, edible things and the winged creatures who consume them.

Quite strong as it turns out.

Mom calls this "spaghetti" but it looks just like worms to me.

Soft, flexible, squishy and clearly playing dead....acts just like worms too.

Whoa! Caught a live one, Mom!

  1. Our bird Pearla is addicted to Ramen noodles.. She as pulled them from my daughters lips!!

    1. Ramen noodles have the proper consistency and mouth feel for sure – I’m not surprised your daughter has to fight Pearla for fair portions! 🙂
