We have a FAMILY of Pileated Woodpeckers. Miraculously, we had all four visit today. We appear to have Mom and three babies (if you can call them that). We have (1) male and (2) females along with Mom. We have not seen Dad in a while. He is enormous! The love the suet.
Another generation of pileated woodpeckers come to our deck regularly. We see 3 of them in the late evening between 5 and 7pm. The like the suet from Wild Birds Unlimited.
The birds love their fountain, too, in this heat!!!
Love my new thistle feeder!!

Attract migrating birds to your backyard by setting up an environment that mimics how birds naturally live and forage. Use native plants (fall is a great time to add them) and include a moving source of water . Learn more about how to prepare your yard for migrating birds on our website! wbu.com/ashburn

Bird Cams

They grow up so quickly!

🌳Only one week remains until the eldest Barred Owl chicks are expected to leave the nest box, and yesterday, one of the owlets got its first look at the surrounding woods! We'll begin to see these young owls perch on the entrance of the nest box more often over the coming days as they contemplate their first step into the outside world.

Watch LIVE at AllAboutBirds.org/BarredOwls

Bye, Bye Babies! It's been a fun few weeks watching the Barred Owl family live from our Wild Birds Unlimited Owl Cam. The baby owls all are grown up and will leave the nest very soon. Be sure to check out what's happening inside the nest box before they're gone. www.wbu.com/owl-cam

Bluebirds vs. red-headed woodpecker!

One of our customers shared this amazing video with us! Bluebirds are aggressively defending their territory/nearby nest and dive bombing a red-headed woodpecker. Apparently, they are particularly intolerant of this bird, more than any other bird that tries to come to the feeders. If only we could all see bluebirds AND red-headed woodpeckers in our yards! 😳

All three owlets have hatched and we can't stop watching them! Joy, Kindness and Hope are adorable white balls of fluff. It is also interesting to see what's for dinner in the owl box...

One big positive in all of this! Spring is a wonderful time to learn about nesting, baby birds, migration and so much more:)

During the coronavirus crisis, families are discovering their avian neighbors and nurturing the next generation of nature lovers.

"Seeking out birds helps my kids sharpen their observational powers, gets them away from screens, and lets them bathe in nature when most of the day is spent indoors. When a hawk calls, my kids respond," says writer Susan Cosier.

Birding Is the Perfect Activity While Practicing Social Distancing

audubon.org This global pandemic has us all pretty freaked out. Handled responsibly, open space and wildlife observation might be just the balm you need.

The WBU Owl Cam is livestreaming now! A mama Barred Owl has set up residence in our owl nest box again this year and you can see inside with our WBU Owl Cam. If all goes well, we can expect the owlets to start hatching in mid-April. They'll leave the nest four to five weeks after hatching. www.wbu.com/owl-cam

Have any of you tried hand-feeding backyard birds? “The Joy of Bird Feeding” book, available in our store, includes a chapter with tips and tricks for getting up close — really close — to your feathered visitors.

A Georgia family found an owl hiding in their Christmas tree

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me ...

https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/18/us/owl-christmas-tree-found-trnd/index.html

cnn.com A Georgia family got a special holiday surprise last week after finding an owl hiding inside their Christmas tree.

What would the birds say about this prediction for morning snow? They'd ask that their feeders be stocked with high-quality, high-calorie food like Bark Butter Bits!

Tonight's model runs are more robust. We maybe looking at delays Wednesday morning. This is not our usual way of getting snow but if we can get some heavy rates overnight...we may see more than what most are calling for.

Looking for unique gifts this holiday season? Give a gift of joy with a bird feeder, bird food and other nature gifts from Wild Birds Unlimited! Your loved ones will delight in watching the beautiful birds attracted to their yard - long after the holiday season ends.

Shop now and wrap up your holiday shopping with just a few clicks, when you order online at mywbu.com/ashburn. We'll personally pack and ship your order for delivery right to their front door. (Mention "gift wrap" during checkout on Order Notes and we will wrap your gifts at no extra charge!)

Black Friday only!Take advantage of our Fill-A-Bag sale and SAVE 25% on everything you can fit in our WBU shopping bag!

[11/27/19]   We will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 28. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and come see us on Friday, Nov. 29, for our annual Fill-a-Bag sale!

Our bird baths are available in 14- and 20-inch sizes. Plenty of room to accommodate your extended family this holiday season.

Cold weather is on the way! Right now birds are hiding food to retrieve and eat at a later time. This behavior is called “caching” and it helps birds survive during bad weather and when food sources are low. You can help by keeping your feeders filled with a reliable source of food.
