A Life Designed by Dawna - Issuu

Take a look at this new article in Pillars of Franchising featuring Dawna Blum! Dawna is the owner of the Wild Birds Unlimited store in Woburn, MA. Dawna shares her very personal journey on how she decided to start the next chapter of her life with Wild Birds Unlimited. Dawna said, “It took a lot of courage for me to take this step. I did not have a lot of support,” she noted. “My kids were very supportive and told me I could do it. Wild Birds Unlimited was fantastic and provided tons of help.” Dawna is an inspiration and perfect example of how pursuing your dreams can lead to great success! Wild Birds Unlimited is very fortunate to have such a determined, fearless, and passionate store owner!

https://issuu.com/pillarsoffranchising/docs/dec_pillarspages_1_/s/14145932

As many of us do when we turn 50, Dawna Blum, her last child in high school, started asking questions – of herself. What’s next? Who am I? What makes me happy? And she set off to find the answer. And find it, she did!

Art and Lisa Martin Grateful for Wild Birds Unlimited Opportunity

This Veterans Day, we want to honor those who dedicate their time to serve and protect our nation. Because of our military veteran franchisees fulfilling the mission to “bring people and nature together,” Wild Birds Unlimited was recently recognized as a Top Franchise for Veterans by Franchise Business Review (Best of the Best) and Entrepreneur Magazine (#34). We are honored to be recognized as a leading brand for veterans and could not do this without our great franchises continuing to serve the nation in a new way. #happyveteransday

It's Millet Time!

Millet is a nice, little, round seed that ground feeders especially love. This time of year, our White-throated Sparrows (pictured) are back, along with Dark-eyed Juncos. Both of these winter residents like to scratch the ground in search of food. Cardinals, Eastern Towhees, and Mourning Doves all like eating off the ground too. So, I like taking a few handfuls and just throwing it around one of my beds and near a feeder. We also sell blends with millet mixed right in.

Finally - don't confuse millet with milo! Milo is a bit larger than millet and orange in color. It is commonly used in cheap birdseeds as filler. Our songbirds generally don't eat the stuff, and it is a gigantic waste of your money and the birds' energy as they throw the milo on the ground looking for the good stuff!

P.S. - There is no such thing as Millet High Life, Millet Genuine Draft, Millet Lite, etc. There's just millet.

This pretty bird showed up this morning. This is the first time I have seen this one. We had two flying around. Can you tell me what kind this is?
Hi, Ive recently become aware that sunflower seeds are usually coated with neonic pesticides ... I am wondering what kind of assurance you can give that bird seed sold at your store does not have neonics used on it? I couldn't find anything on the website. Thanks
"By sharing his experiences, he hopes the book will guide those who’ve had similar downturns to embrace nature as a form of self-care." Wild Birds Unlimited will be at The Center on July 24 and will discuss how to create a bird friendly environment at home. Details at http://ow.ly/FG6950uE688.
We have gotten a lot of black birds lately. They are running off the Cardinals and Woodpeckers. Not sure what kind they are. They are not crows. Does anyone have the same problem?
