Many birds eat insects naturally, so feeding mealworms to the birds is a natural thing to do. Plus, you’ll enjoy watching birds such as chickadees, bluebirds, wrens, towhees, woodpeckers, robins, catbirds, nuthatches, thrashers and others devour these mouthwatering morsels!
Mealworms are the larvae of the beetle Tenebrio molitor. We sell dehydrated mealworms.Birds typically look for food around the same time each day, so you can place worms in a feeder or tray at the same time the birds regularly visit. Some Wild Birds Unlimited feeders to consider are the Dinner Bell and the SideDish™ feeders (check out How to Attract Cardinals to see pictures). Mealworms are a great way to attract birds that don’t ordinarily come to seed feeders.
These tasty tidbits are small nuggets of suet that are perfect for a wide variety of bird feeders. They are an excellent source of energy for birds, and they can be offered throughout the year. Many birds, including bluebirds, nuthatches, chickadees, woodpeckers and Blue Jays enjoy our Bark Butter Bits. Provide them on their own in a dish or tray feeder, in the tray of a Dinner Bell feeder, or mix in with seed in a hopper feeder.
Our Wild Birds Unlimited Hummingbird and Oriole Nectar provides the high calories these active birds need. It contains no dyes or additives, is easy to mix and delivers wonderful results! Stir it in boiled water, let it cool, and then fill your feeders. Makes 4 cups of nectar. Any leftover solution can be stored in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Jim Carpenter, an avid nature enthusiast and the founder and CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, created Bark Butter over 20 years ago and used it to attract Brown Creepers. However, through the years Jim discovered that it attracts many species of birds including thrushes, warblers, thrashers, orioles, catbirds, cardinals, mockingbirds, wrens, woodpeckers, juncos, towhees, grosbeaks, robins and more! Read the full list here. Simply spread this mixture of peanut butter, cornmeal, and suet onto a fence, shed or tree.
You can also offer it on one of our Bark Butter Feeders, which can either be hung or mounted (by EZ Attach) onto our Advanced Pole System.
