Back Yard Bird Food Essentials

Wild Birds Unlimited Seed Bags

The Best, Freshest Seed in Town

The average back yard may be visited regularly by 15 to 20 different bird species. However, a bird-friendly yard in an ideal habitat, can attract up to 60 or more different species.

Wild Birds Unlimited is dedicated to offering fresh, top-quality seed. Our no-waste No Mess bird seed blends contain only 100% edible seed. No cereal fillers—just fresh, high-quality seed your birds will love. We have 4 No Mess blends and 4 in-shell blends along with single item seeds like sunflower chips, Nyjer and Safflower.

Wild Birds Unlimited Suet Cakes

Give Your Birds a Boost With Suet

...from $2.69 and only $2.29 for DSC Members!

Birds such as woodpeckers, warblers, chickadees and nuthatches, regularly eat suet for its high-fat, high-energy content. We offer a variety of suet flavors to attract the greatest assortment of birds. All Wild Birds Unlimited suet is rendered, meaning impurities that can cause spoilage are removed, so it is shelf-stable.     

Finicky Finches Love Nyjer® (aka "thistle")

Nyjer 3 lb. bag of LOCAL Nyjer $8.00

Nyjer attracts finches, its high oil content is an excellent energy source for active birds like finches. It's best used in our specially-designed finch feeders, and it's critical to keep the food fresh for these picky little eaters. Once seed starts to dry out and become stale, or if it gets a bit wet and gets moldy, finches will turn up their beaks for fresher forage. Store your Nyjer in an airtight container for a longer shelf life and buy in small quantities that will be used up in a few weeks.

We are fortunate to have the only US-grown commercial Nyjer, sourced from our local seed-grower near the Eugene airport. This fresh seed is NOT heat-treated before entry into the US (since it's grown here), so it's very fresh and finches love it!
