Eugene's Wild Bird and Nature Experts... Call us about monthly seminars, bird walks, and any wild bird questions...we're all about the birds!
Suet is a high-fat, high-calorie favorite of many birds, especially in cool weather like our winters when they need more energy to stay warm. Our suets and no-melt suets contain the highest-quality ingredients and make every trip to the feeder count for the birds. Other suet uses lower quality ingredients and the birds, if given a choice, will flock to the suets we carry.
The EcoTough™ Tail Prop Suet Feeder (shown here) is environmentally friendly and made from recycled plastic milk jugs. Easy to fill and clean, it allows birds to eat in a natural way. The paddle simulates a tree trunk and offers birds like Downy Woodpeckers and others with stiff central tail feathers a place to comfortably prop their tail while they feed.
*Don't forget: DSC members get an extra 5% OFF their suet, too, another benefit of your DSC Membership dues. Valid only at the Eugene WBU store. Offer valid on Bark Butter and suet cases or individual suet cakes or Bark Butter tubs and mixed cases can be discounted, too. Not valid on previous purchases or sale items. (Below, a male Flicker [on the right] "courts" a female Flicker [on left] on either side of an Eco-Tough Tail Prop Suet feeder! These two eventually raised 3 youngsters on Barbara & Dan's suet...plus some other foods.)
Feeding Suet (left above) and Bark Butter (right above) in Winter suits birds quite well! The fat in these special foods helps birds stay warm and energized, allowing them efficient foraging so they can find food to help them get through tough weather and get ready for Spring.
Jim's Birdacious® Bark Butter®
is a spreadable suet that can be easily smeared on tree bark, on a Bark Butter Feeder, or on any number of other surfaces. This exclusive food option has attracted more than 115 different bird species, including many that do not normally visit feeders. Besides the Bark Butter tub, birds also love Bark Butter Bits, Bark Butter Bricks and Bark Butter Plugs. Bark Butter is helpful for attracting Townsend's Warblers, Chickadees, Nuthatches, Juncos, and many other birds in our area.
Suet is an especially high-value food for birds in winter, supplying them with the fat used for energy and warmth, and protein as well. We have a variety of superior quality suets with choice ingredients in them or plain suet available as well. Get a FREE Suet Cake when you buy a Suet Feeder!
