Food on the plate

We put a bird feeder out in the balcony and put some grain which someone thought birds loved. After successfully making a lot of birds drink water from our bird water drinker I thought this was the next step. I admire birds because they are light and are programmed (possibly) to eat light and burn it off flying. A pigeon has for the last 5 minutes eaten non stop. I am worried now. Isn’t he overeating ? Just because there is food on the plate. Maybe it’s symbolic of what ails me too, food on the plate. Food is best hunted (or plucked) and eaten fresh. The act of hunting is the main joy, maybe I try to compensate for not having that joy by overeating instead.
