Exciting New Bird Food at Wild Birds Unlimited Stores

Right now we are seeing an increase in activity at the feeders. Some birds from Canada and the U.P. are making mid-Michigan their winter resting place. Some Dark-eyed Juncos, Red-Breasted Nuthatches, Pine Siskins, Redpolls, Crossbills, and Snow Buntings are just a few birds seen here only during the winter. The White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows are common migrants in mid-Michigan from mid-September to mid-November.

A few other feeder birds that you will see all year as well as during the winter are the Mourning Dove, Downy Woodpecker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Blue Jay, American Crow, Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, White-breasted Nuthatch, European Starling, Northern Cardinal, American Goldfinch, and of course the House Sparrow to name a few.

And the Wild Birds Unlimited store in East Lansing, Michigan have lots of food and feeders to attract all these birds up close. One of our most popular feeders is the seed cylinder feeder.

The Seed Cylinder feeders are popular with people who have been bird feeding a long time and for beginners. It is one of the easiest feeders to maintain and attracts a wide variety of birds.

For people that aren't able to get out to fill feeders often during our harsh Michigan winters this feeder is ideal. Depending on bird activity in your yard, a 2lb cylinder can last weeks and a 4.5lb cylinder can last months.

Oh the weather outside is frightful, But this feeder is so delightful!
Now we’ve developed a new adorable seed cylinder shape for winter. Our regular Bird Food Cylinders offer a convenient alternative way to feed the birds. And Buttons the Snowman, a whimsical seed cylinder is a fantastic way to introduce friends and family to the hobby of bird feeding.

Available for a limited time only, our Snowman Seed Cylinder is a seasonal mix of safflower, sunflower chips, peanuts, cherries, blueberries and papaya to attract a variety of birds. Simply slide the Snowman Seed Cylinder onto our WBU Seed Cylinder Feeders or WBU Dinner Bell™ feeder and enjoy the feathered holiday visitors.
The Snowman Seed Cylinder is the perfect holiday addition to any yard and 
a great gift idea for the nature lovers on your list.

Dimensions: 7½" x 3" diameter
