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.

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.

Traditions make the holidays so exciting and uniquely special. For nature enthusiasts all around the world, backyard birds are part of our holiday traditions, too.

There is a Scandinavian holiday tradition of placing bird food on the front porch. According to folklore, when you attract birds to this offering, you and your family will have good luck in the new year.

Packed with sunflower chips, pecans, peanuts, tree nuts, Bark Butter Bits and Nutrasaff, this blend is a nutritional powerhouse right when birds need it most.

If you have problems with squirrels raiding your bird feeders, Wild Birds Unlimited has the solution: The Eliminator™ Bird Feeder.
As intimidating as the name sounds, this feeder is just as effective at keeping bird food safe from backyard critters.
The Eliminator’s unique technology allows you to set the sensitivity level, so when a squirrel touches the perch ring, its weight closes the seed ports and they can't access the food. You can also adjust it to exclude large birds, such as pigeons or doves.

We had an interesting visitor at pur feeder yesterday.
Thank you Wild Birds Unlimited for sponsoring the Birdathon!

With eleven Celebrate Birds events and over 100 volunteer leader hours, we shared the excitement of the spring migration with over 120 participants. Birdathon competition results of 13 teams will be posted soon wrapping up another fantastic year. Thank you to everyone who made this year a success; we've raised over $18,000 thus far!
I hope to see more residents in this area post photos of the birds they see!

On this wintery day, I saw a bird I’ve never seen before in my backyard. I took numerous photos of it when I saw it, and after reviewing the photo with my trusty Peterson guide, it appears this is a male Western Tanager!!! Holy cow!

The features that pushed me in that direction are the following:
1) Head with orange/red
2) Two wing bars, the top of which is yellow and the bottom white
3) Yellow rump from above

These are not great photos because of the rain and shooting through the glass, but just thought I‘d share with you all so you can keep a lookout for one too!
Today's the last day to vote for your favorite photo in the BirdSpotter Winter 2021 contest! Take a look at the 10 finalists we chose (from more than 2,000 amazing submissions), and cast your vote for the winner. Voting ends Feb.17. Thanks again to Wild Birds Unlimited for sponsoring this contest!
