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.

Winter is a wonderful time to feed the birds. Not only is it a chance to help the birds get the necessary fats for surviving longer nights and colder temperatures, but it's also a good time to see a variety of birds visiting your feeders.

Fuel Up for Winter!
Extra Fat is Critical for Birds' Winter Survival
This time of year, it's not unusual to make a resolution to trim the fat from our daily diets. But it's different for birds. Fat is fuel and stored body fat is a bird's primary energy supply that helps them survive winter. Even in areas lacking bitter temperatures, they need extra fat to endure the long period of darkness during winter nights.

You can help by providing high-fat foods like Jim's Birdacious® Bark Butter®, Bark Butter® Bits and Bugs & Bits®. Shop now and save on all Bark Butter® products - they're perfect for providing your birds with much-needed nutrients.

National Bird Day Illustration Time Lapse

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.

Hello, we have a Mini High Perch Hummingbird Feeder that we purchased from Birds Unlimted and unfortunately, we lost the hook. Do you sell replacement parts for this feeder or do you have any hooks that are compatible that will fit/screw in? Thanks in advance! :)
Controlling Hogging Doves

Hope this might help some customers.

As with many of you, doves have taken over and hogged our feeder. I have looked at other dove detergent systems but they make it difficult for many birds to bend forward to feed.
I was able jigsaw out from 1/2 wooden boards two partitions that make it difficult for doves to come into the feeder. I used some duct seal to secure the pieces in.
These do work, with the odd dove uncomfortably succeeding but only for a short while. Other birds including cardinals, juncos, finch, sparrows are feeding successfully

Cheers

Gary
Bird and shadow🐤😆
I have to say, your Oriole Delight no-melt suet is a huge success on my feeder these days. The orioles are there from sunrise to sunset, booting everyone else off the feeder and enjoying themselves thoroughly!
I also had to share this photo from this afternoon. It looks like someone's getting an earful!
This Oriole was really enjoying the orange I put out for him this morning. :)
Gross beaks are back.
