!!!Be aware that this food chain don’t show chain for “food like substances” that are manufactured and have nothing to do with real whole food. Junk food is different animal altogether and its chain would probably fill the whole chart

One answer – insect control!

Inviting wild birds into your garden is great for insect control. Laying out ready food for birds encourages them to also eat slugs, worms, snails, spiders and other insects which may harm your plants.
