    As you are new to the bird scene, it is great that you are asking
    these questions. A lot of good people here to help you. Birds are
    very complexed creatures, so closely related, but still with
    different needs and requirements.

    Here is the information to what Grey Lady was specifying to
    regarding their individual species diets. Yes, most eat the same,
    but still you need to know of their diets in general per species.
    For example, I have Macaws and would not feed Cockatiel food to
    them. This is from The National Aviary Bird Park site. Below is
    the link and suggested diet requirements article as well. Check it
    out.

    ....each species has different dietary requirements according to
    their species, age, sex and activity level. Formulated diets are
    available for most species, but some birds also require fresh
    produce daily.... Good luck and enjoy you feathered friend.
