We sell more than bird seed and bird feeders. We are trained to show you how to turn your yard into a bird feeding habitat.
Wild Birds Unlimited specializes in bringing people and nature together through the hobby of backyard bird feeding and nature products. Our stores offer the highest quality products including Bird food, Bird Baths and Bird houses.
Songbird Meadow presented by Wild Birds Unlimited at the 2023 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival is home to several native plants which provides a favorable habitat for birds and insects alike.
Scientists have identified habitat loss as a contributing factor for the decline in bird populations. One of the best things you can do is create a wildlife friendly habitat in your yard, on your patio or balcony. Native plants are a key element in your habitat. They can provide food, shelter and a place to raise their young. Below are a few native plant resources to get you started in creating a bird-friendly habitat in your yard:

Once on the decline, more and more people are successful at attracting bluebirds. Their brilliant blue plumage, social nature and cheerful song add a little joy to any backyard they visit. A great way to entice them (and a variety of other songbirds) is by offering some of their favorite foods like Nesting SuperBlend®️, Bark Butter®️ products and mealworms.

Bluebirds always bring a smile. Even though early pioneers' use of the land resulted in habitat changes that left bluebird numbers in steep decline by the mid-1960s. Recognizing the issue, countless people began building nest boxes across the land, much to the benefit of bluebirds. Today, they are commonplace, not only in the countryside, but also in urban backyards.

Whether you have a single feeder in your yard or a wildlife oasis, feeding the birds brings joy to every member of the family. Make sure it stays a part of your daily life with these tips for getting more bang for your buck:
1. Use the Right Foods:
The price of discount store seed blends may look good up front. But those bags can contain as much as 90% filler grains (like milo, wheat and oats), which most songbirds don’t eat.
2. Use No-Mess Blends:
Traditional blends include seeds that are still in the shell, with the shells themselves accounting for up to 50% of the total weight of a bag of seed. Our WBU No-Mess Blends feature seeds that have had their shells removed so the birds eat everything and there's no waste.
3. Use Seed Cylinders:
Seed Cylinders are made from tightly-packed, high-quality bird food. Simply put, they are the easiest, longest-lasting way to feed your birds.
4. Protect Your Bird Food:
Use baffles and cages to protect bird food from critters and to keep nuisance birds (like starlings and grackles) from eating all the food.
5. Feed a Little at a Time:
Bird feeders are a beneficial daily supplement to natural diets and not the birds’ sole source of food. It's fine to fill your feeders partially and only at times when you can actively watch and enjoy the birds.
6. Join our Daily Savings Club!
One of the best ways to stretch your bird feeding budget is to join our Daily Savings Club®️. You'll get 15% OFF regular prices of all bird food every day, 5% OFF bird food sales prices and earn points towards a $10 Bird Buck coupon with every purchase.

We've had our differences, but maybe it's time to call a truce, even if it's just for one day. January 21 is Squirrel Appreciation Day, and while they can be a menace, they're also pretty darn adorable and fun to watch. So enjoy your day, squirrels, because the truce ends on January 22.

We truly have the most talented and skillful staff here at Wild Birds Unlimited.
Today, we celebrate WBU's very own graphic designer and the positive impact she makes with her keen ability to story tell and bring the WBU mission to life through her work.
You may recall our post from last week (check it out if you haven't seen it)! Our graphic designer put her heart and soul into creating and designing the illustration for that post.
Here's a sneak peek into her process, from drawing the birds by hand, to designing the final product in Adobe Fresco with her iPad.
