I don’t think rice is safe for birds but this looks like flattened rice, like they have in India. Put some in water first and see if it expands a lot. Not a good idea to feed birds stuff that expands too much, or so I hear.

The bird thing is a myth, however most venues don’t allow rice

Why not just throw bird seed? What could be luckier than feeds little song birds?

I think that wet rice can be slippery – maybe that’s why most places don’t allow it. I’ve never seen amything other than birdseed, in recent decades.

my venue recommended biodegradable confetti if we were going to toss anything, but it sounds like you’ve already made a purchase so stick with that!

Yes it is safe. We used it at a wedding that I had planned. The venue was a wild life museum and they would only allow this because it was safe for all their animals.
