It would be good to explain that a problem with feeding birds is that the species that come to the food will be those that eat it; other species which don't eat the food (e.g. small, insectivorous species) will not only miss out, but be driven away by those that do. So, feed birds, sure, but take care not to favour one species to the detriment of another, unless that other species is an Indian myna, for which the maximum amount of disadvantage should be the goal!
