Question:
I live in southeast Ohio and have a butterfly bush. I thought I saw a small bird chasing a butterfly off the bush. Do birds eat butterflies?


Replies:
Most certainly, some birds eat some butterflies. Predator - prey relationships are very diverse and interesting. You might keep watching to see if you can find out what species of birds and butterflies are at your bush.
