Eatable Bird Seed Recipe
Use equal amounts
I’m a little bit of a history buff so it’s interesting to me to dig into the root of something.
Have you heard the statement, “That’s for the birds!”
The phrase, “that’s for the birds,” is of American origin and hasn’t been commonly used anywhere else. Sergt. Buck Erickson, of Camp Ellis, Illinois used it in an interview with The Lowell Sun. It is Army slang and used towards the end of WWII. When it comes down to it the phrase actually means something is worthless or meaningless. The root of the expression is the habit of some birds pecking at horse droppings in order to find seeds.
Now, doesn’t that make you just want to grab a bag of bird seed. Even though, I discovered the meaning, it still doesn’t keep me from enjoy this tasty treat.
