In this corner: the returning champion of bird food, reliable and always filling.
In the other corner: the challengers, unique and interesting foods such as mealworms, seed cylinders, suet and Suet Snacks that will help you attract more birds to your backyard.
Mealworms are a high-protein favorite of birds such as bluebirds, wrens, robins, chickadees and mockingbirds. Because live mealworms can potentially crawl out of feeders, we sell the dried variety which are just as healthy and nutritious as the live variety, but much more convenient to handle.
Try offering seed cylinders if you're looking to add more flavour to your yard. 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 birdfeeding 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.
Stop by this month and let us know what kind of birds you want at your feeders. No one has a better selection of bird food than Wild Birds Unlimited. 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.

Jim Carpenter, an avid nature enthusiast and the founder and CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, created Bark Butter over 20 years ago and used it to attract Brown Creepers.
However, through the years Jim discovered that it attracts more than 95 species of birds including thrushes, warblers, thrashers, orioles, catbirds, cardinals, mockingbirds, wrens, woodpeckers, juncos, towhees, grosbeaks, robins and more.
See the current bird list.
Jim has released his creation and made it available to the public! Stop by our store and pick up a tub of your own.
Looking for a new and convenient way to attract more birds to your feeders? Our Deluxe Fare Seed Cylinders are packed with pecans, peanuts, black oil and striped sunflower seeds, safflower and millet to attract a greater variety of birds. Try our seed cylinders on a ground tray feeder, use a wire hanger designed for seed cylinders, or use it in our Dinner Bell feeder. They're delicious to your neighborhood birds.
Our Cranberry Fare Seed Cylinders are packed with pecans, sunflower chips, peanuts, safflower,
black oil sunflower and cranberries - everything you need to satisfy your birds. Try offering one in a Seed Cylinder Feeder or Dinner Bell feeder.
Our Safflower Sensation is a dining delight for a variety of birds. Made completely out of safflower seed, it attracts birds such as Chickadees, Cardinals, House Finches and more. However, Safflower is typically not preferred by animals that may cause problems at your feeders — grackles, blackbirds and squirrels.
During nesting season, many birds struggle to get an adequate amount of calcium in their diet. Egg Essentials are suet snacks that contain the necessary calcium to help make stronger eggs and healthier bones for mother birds and their babies. Egg Essentials fit perfectly in a variety of feeders and can also be mixed in with your regular seed offering
Most birds eat insects naturally, so feeding mealworms to the birds is a natural thing to do. Plus, you’ll enjoy watching birds such as chickadees, bluebirds, wrens, towhees, woodpeckers, robins, catbirds, nuthatches, thrashers and others devour these mouthwatering morsels! A Red-breasted Nuthatch was seen taking mealworms from a feeder, and catching them at a rate of three per minute.
Mealworms are the larvae of the beetle Tenebrio molitor. The larvae stage of the beetle typically lasts for 10 weeks. The advantage of dried mealworms is that they can be kept for much linger.
Birds typically look for food around the same time each day, so you can place worms in a feeder or tray at the same time the birds regularly visit. Mealworms are a great way to attract birds that don’t ordinarily come to seed feeders.
