| If you are out for a walk next time, don't forget to bring some freshly picked shepherd's purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris) for your pet birds. The half-ripe seed pods are a delicacy for many pet bird species. In Central Europe, sheperd's purse flowers from March to October and the plants are about 20 to 40 cm tall. Half-ripe seeds can be found from April to Ocotber. |
