It’s March and that Means Spring is on the Way! Feed Your Wild Birds Well!

 

Bluebird w mealworm Mealworms are a high-protein favorite of many of Florida’s wild birds such as bluebirds, wrens, robins, chickadees and mockingbirds. Because mealworms can potentially crawl out of feeders, it’s important to offer them in feeders with smooth sides like our Advanced Pole System® SideDish™ and Dinner Bell.

Try offering seed cylinders if you’re looking to add more flavor to your Florida backyard habitat. We carry an assortment of seed cylinders, including Deluxe, Supreme and Cranberry Fare. They make feeding your birds easy. Just set one out and watch!

Our Seed Cylinder Feeders are the perfect blend of creative design and wild bird feeding functionality, and are capable of housing several sizes and types of seed cylinders.

Suet is a high-energy, pure fat substance that entices a multitude of birds, including insect-eaters. Our Suet Snacks are small nuggets of suet that birds love. We also carry a variety of feeders that hold suet or Suet Snacks.

And whether you’re looking for a champ or a challenger, we’ll make sure you have the food and feeders you need to make your backyard reign supreme.

Lots of Oil = Lots of Birds

Choice Blend

Our Choice Blend bird seed is a fantastic combination of high-oil content seeds. The black oil sunflower, sunflower chips, striped sunflower, safflower and peanuts do a great job of attracting a variety of birds including chickadees, woodpeckers, titmice, nuthatches and jays. Try this remarkable seed blend in a hopper feeder, tube feeder or our Dinner Bell feeder, and add loads of fun to your backyard bird watching experience.

Each of our seed blends is regionally formulated to attract the birds that live in our area. We do not include filler grains like oats, wheat and milo that decrease the price per pound of a mix because these filler seeds are less attractive (or not attractive) to birds. Because there is no wasted seed, our blends actually end up costing less to use while attracting more of the wild birds that you want to watch.

Bird Feeding StationYour Florida backyard is your safe haven. It’s your place to relax, a place to get away from it all.

With Wild Birds Unlimited exclusive, patented Advanced Pole System® (APS), you can create the ultimate station that will attract the best of Florida’s wild birds to your backyard.

Be sure to place your feeding station in a location that helps prevent window strikes and/or keeps squirrels off your feeders.

Window Strike Zone: To see birds up close, place your setup no more than three feet away from your window.

This will decrease the likelihood of birds injuring themselves if they do hit your window. Otherwise, place your setup no less than ten feet away.

Squirrel-proof Zone: Place your baffled station at least ten feet away from other objects that squirrels can jump from to make it unreachable.

1. Plant It

Start your custom APS bird feeding station by twisting the 4-foot Base Pole (denoted as (a) in the picture) into the ground.

Then slide the Stabilizer (b) onto the Base Pole and secure it into the ground to keep your station looking great and standing straight.

2. Extend It

Next, place an APS Extension Pole (c) on the Base Pole. Then simply add a Double Crook Arm (d), an EZ-Attach™ Crook Arm (e) and an EZ-Attach Decorative Branch Perch (f).

Our EZ-Attach design makes adding accessories to an APS setup a snap. Just slip the EZ-Attach unit on an extension pole and pull down to secure.

3. Accessorize It

Top your feeding station with one of our many finials (g). If you have squirrels or raccoons that would become a nuisance at your new feeding station, be sure to add a squirrel or raccoon baffle (h). Finally, fill and add your feeders.

    Gang,

    Help! Blue jays gave taken over all my feeders and bullied every other species off. They are gluttons and eat a full feeder per day. How do I bring in other birds to my feeders?
