When buying groceries, your choices can have an impact on birds, too. If you eat meat, look for grass-fed meat. Birds that depend on fields and prairies will thrive side-by-side with cows that graze on grassland. And buying shade-grown coffee also helps our feathered friends. Instead of cutting down rainforest land to grow coffee, the crops are grown under the canopy of the rainforest. It's believed that 2 square feet of rainforest land is saved for every cup of shade-grown coffee.
