Handmade & Fair Trade!Wakami bracelets

Wakami is a socially conscious brand that creates fair trade jewelry. Designed and produced in Guatemala, these handmade bracelets are inspired by ancestral culture and wearing techniques from Central America.

 

Wakami connects artisans in rural villages to urban markets around the world. Through the fair trade program, artisans are able to empower themselves to become leaders of sustainable change in their community.

 

Guess who's back?!Owl Cam

 WBU's Jim Carpenter has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his backyard for many years and a mama Barred Owl has set up residence again this year (How cool is that!). Mama moved into the box in early March and now has 3 eggs. If all goes well, we can expect the owlets to hatch in mid-April and they'll leave the nest by late May! Click on the picture of the mother Barred Owl to the left to see the live cam!

Tidy Cylinder Feeder!Tidy Cylinder Feeder

Featuring a tray that reduces the amount of uneaten seed debris that falls to the ground, our Tidy Cylinder Feeder makes offering seed cylinders easy. Simply drop one of our exclusive seed cylinders (2 lbs.), No-melt Dough Cylinders or up to three Stackables® into the feeder, hang it, and watch your birds enjoy.

Our exclusively-formulated Seed Cylinders, No-melt Dough Cylinders and Stackables keep birds at the feeders longer because they have to work to remove seeds. So instead of birds swooping in, grabbing a bite and taking off, Seed Cylinders give you a few extra moments of enjoyment.

Have a pool? Get the Frog-Log!Original Frog Log

Save all those little critters that fall into your swimming pool! When an animal circles around the edge of the pool looking for a way out, it will bump into the FrogLog, climb onto the floating platform, up the mesh ramp, and exit the pool. Easy to assemble and store away for the winter, this is a simple solution to making your pool that much more wildlife-friendly.

Watch the demonstration video to see the Frog Log in action.

 

 

 

 

 

Drink shade-grown coffee, save the birds!Birds & Beans

"Coffee made in the shade" - that means better for the birds! We are proud to carry Toronto-based Birds & Beans coffee, providing orgranic, fair trade, songbird-friendly coffee which means that this great-tasting coffee preserves the wintering habitat of our migratory songbirds. Instead of growing coffee on cleared land with little-to-no habitat for birds, bird-friendly coffee is grown in shade-grown plantations that preserve the vegetation needed for wintering songbirds. Try one of the three flavours available in store: Dark Roast, Medium Roast, and Decaf. Visit Birds&Beans.ca to read more! 

 

 


Squirrel Buster Peanut+ FeederFeed Peanuts, without the Squirrels!

It's the world's first truly squirrel-proof peanut feeder! This feeder allows you to offer no-shell peanuts for your chickadees, woodpeckers, and jays without having the squirrels steal all the food. The outer shroud slides down over the ports when a squirrel gets on the feeder, denying them access to the food

Because the outer shroud extends below the feeding ports, it allows larger birds such as the Hairy or Red-bellied Woodpeckers (pictured right) to feed comfortably using their tails for support. The feeder is also weight-adjustable, so you control whether or not larger birds have access. Comes with a lifetime guarantee against damage.

Offer no-shell peanuts or Jim's Birdacious Bark Butter Bits.

Family bird-watching with binocularsBird-Watchers Flock to the Library

The Guelph Public Library is encouraging all birdwatching enthusiasts to "flock" into their local library branch to sign out one of fourteen new Bird Watching Packs, graciously donated by the Gosling Foundation. Each pack comes with a set of binoculars, field guides, and information about bird watching in and around Guelph.

Bruce Weaver of the Guelph Public Library Board says: "This is a great partnership between the Gosling Foundation and Wild Birds Unlimited... I hope to see our library customers joining the Guelph Field Naturalists on outings to really put the Bird Watching Packs to good use!"
