New Daily Savings

Club Program

As we have indicated in our recent newsletters, we are phasing out the Seed Storage Program, and are now offering a new program called the Daily Savings Club. This program will replace putting seed on storage, and for a $25.00 annual fee, you will get a 15% discount off the regular price on all of your seed and suet every day of the year! Plus during the seed sales you will get an additional 5% off the sale prices, and for every $200.00 you spend on ANY merchandise in the store you will receive a $10.00 Bird Buck coupon. You will also get a free gift for joining the only Club that saves you money every day of the year.

This program will not affect any seed or suet that you currently have on storage, but future seed and suet storage will no longer be available. The membership is valid only at the store of purchase, and is not transferable to other WBU stores.

Feeding birds is second only to gardening as the most popular hobby in Canada and the United States.

We thank you for your business, and look forward to saving you money as you continue to enjoy Nature in your backyard and feeding your favourite birds.

 

Sincerely,

John & Wendy Morton

 

Make March Less of a Stress for Birds

Dinner Bell FeederSimply put, March can be a very difficult month for your birds.

Early in the month, birds' natural food supply is at its lowest point of the year. Insect populations are still low, and the few remaining wild fruits, berries, seeds and nuts are either hidden or undesirable. Unpredictable weather doesn't make life any easier. Sunny, warm, spring-like days can turn into cold, damp conditions that challenge birds' survival skills. And to make matters worse, this is all happening as some birds prepare for nesting season.

However, these various challenges provide you with one of the best opportunities of the year to help your birds.

Providing Food Makes a Difference

Offer your birds lots of high-energy foods, such as peanuts and suet. Loaded with fat and protein, these are beneficial substitutes for the scarce insects many birds would eat if they could find them.

Counteract the lack of natural insects by offering protein-rich mealworms. They are eaten by numerous species of birds and can be a lifesaver during a sudden cold snap.

Nesting Birds Need Help, Too

Birds build open-cup shaped nests in trees or on the ground, or they nest in cavities (or holes) in trees. By placing nesting materials and installing bird houses around your backyard, you can entice birds, such as bluebirds, wrens, chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, woodpeckers, Purple Martins, swallows, owls and Wood Ducks. Bird houses can make your birds' lives a little easier. After all, they have already expended a lot of energy establishing territories, courting and looking for scarce food.

If you are using a functional bird house to provide your birds a home, be sure it meets these six requirements:

  • Designed for the species, according to bird’s size and nesting requirements
  • Ventilation holes to provide release for heat build-up
  • Easily cleaned
  • Easily mounted or hung
  • Durable to withstand several seasons of use
  • Drainage holes in the bottom of the house
