You won't give a tiger and a tabby cat the same kind of diet, even if they're technically of the same family. It works the same way for birds. Bird foods are not identical to one another. In fact, it's the other way around -- there are many bird foods because each kind of bird usually calls for its own special diet. If you have pet birds, make sure you get the bird food intended for their kind.
