Wild Birds Unlimited Stackables allow you to offer a wide complement of rich birdfoods in a convenient, easy-to-use format in simple, inexpensive feeders.
One of the things that we like best about Stackables is that you can offer a small amount of super high quality seed and suet pressed into one tidy block. That’s perfect for times when feeder activity is low or high humidity is threatening to ruin the birdfood before it gets eaten. Stackables also allow you to offer seed and suet in very close proximity thereby increasing the number of visits to both.
Choose a single Stackable for quick, convenient birdfeeding or stack multiple discs for an even richer array of top rate bird foods. Stackables can simply be placed in trays but WBU offers a few different simple Stackable feeders. Most of our feeders can hold three Stackables
Want to do a better job attracting birds and other wildlife to your yard? Join us on March 8th from 10am-1pm to learn about wildlife friendly planting from Master Gardeners Ann Hudson and Wendy Wilber. These two expert gardeners will be at Wild Birds Unlimited to answer questions and give suggestions to help you improve the habitat around you.
An unusually cold winter in the rest of North America can often mean an unusually busy birding winter in Florida. From the field this winter, birders have reported an impressive diversity of species that normally overwinter far to the west and north of Florida. Deprived by freezing temperatures of their usual complement of insects, seed, and mast, birds move to survive.
See “Banding hummingbirds in January” for a detailed look at how western hummingbirds have responded to this season’s conditions but look no further than your own yard to see how our regular suspects have responded. Cardinals are normally spotty at best in most yards throughout the winter. This winter, almost every customer has been seeing cardinals all day long. Blue Jays are normally absent from feeders until March but have been visiting feeders regularly.
The goldfinch activity also started a little earlier than usual and persisted into early February. Now, goldfinches have departed temporarily to forage in hardwood forests and other natural areas. Hopefully, by the time this newsletter makes it into your mailbox the goldfinches will have returned for their final flourish. Keep those feeders out!
Whether it’s the Carolina Wren in your potted plant or the Carolina Chickadee in your nesting box, for a few of our breeding residents, nesting season is on! If you’ve enjoyed the activity at your feeders then you’ll love being a host to a bird family. Read more here!
On January 18, master bird bander Fred Basset visited the Gainesville area to band overwintering hummingbirds. Our kids got up close and personal with a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. Read more about our adventure here.
