What can I feed a meadow pipit in captivity?

Pipits are insect eaters. That means in captivity one should provide an insectivorous diet. We feed live mini mealworms and small defrosted wax worm pieces. Buffalo worms are also a good alternative. If the bird is in an outdoor aviary, he or she will also hunt naturally occurring insects, which can be encouraged by providing a dense natural vegetation. We also offer live small silent brown crickets. In addition to the live food specified above, we provide a dish with small amounts of a good insect eater food such as Prosecto Insectivorous from Haith’s or Beaphar Insect Food.
 
 
 
 
We also offer occasionally mini suet balls, like these ones below. 
 
 
 
All birds receive vitamin supplements with their daily drinking water.
