Jim’s Birdacious Bark Butter Bits with Calcium

With the right additions, your yard can be even more attractive to visiting birds.

Bird Feeding Stations

Adding a WBU Advanced Pole System® bird feeding station with new feeders can help attract more birds to your yard. More feeders, spread farther apart, can reduce overcrowding and help lessen birds’ stress.

Also, by offering new or different foods in your new feeders, you’ll attract a greater variety of birds to your yard.

Bird Baths

Birds need water to keep their feathers in top-flight condition and for good insulation on cool spring nights. Add a decorative bird bath that is bird-friendly. We carry a variety of ceramic, concrete and other styles.

Clean your existing bird baths with a 10% bleach (one part bleach to nine parts water) solution. Rinse thoroughly and allow them to
completely dry. Refill your bird baths with fresh water at least once a week.

Bark Butter Bits

Jim's Birdacious Bark Butter Bits with Calcium are a peanut and suet based treat loaded with fat and protein.  They are known to attract more than 120 species of birds.  The added Calcium is the perfect ingredient to help meet the needs of nesting birds. Calcium helps strengthen egg shells and an essential building block as baby birds grow.  It's perfect for Spring!

Jim's Birdacious Bark Butter Bits with Calcium allow you to easily offer Bark Butter in tray, seed tube and hopper feeders.

Feeder Fresh™

An excellent solution for seeds and blends during spring showers.  Mix Feeder Fresh™ in with seed to prevent mold and caking in tube or hopper feeders, making them easier to clean and more appealing to birds. It is a bird-safe moisture trap and seed preservative that fights rain, condensation, leaks and humidity to keep your feeder fresh. Works especially well with Nyjer, WBU Finch Blend and WBU No-Mess Blends..
