The Art of Living Beautifully
Friends, today we are living beautifully by ensuring the sweet, feathery songbirds that live in our trees are properly cared for this summer, and Wild Birds Unlimited is helping us do this. Remember last fall when I introduced you to Birdie Miller, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited located at Hardin and Eldorado in the Tom Thumb shopping center? Well, I stopped by the shop last week to see what’s new and I want to show you some must-have items Birdie told me about.
- McKinney birds are foodies! WBU has a huge variety of bird seed and feed that no other markets have. Songbirds and peanut-loving birds LOVE the no-mess seed that Birdie carries. (This seed doesn’t have shells which keeps your garden tidy.) Plus, she has mealworms for Bluebirds and nectar and feeders for Hummingbirds!
- WBU also carries bark butter which is a type of suet, full of good fats that keep our birds healthy. This is one of my favorite products carried at WBU!
- Joy of Bird Feeding book
- This beautiful book is a wonderful gift for Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation Week. It offers practical tips and solutions to attracting and identifying birds, offering the best foods for the birds you want to see, and how to deter those unwanted guests to feeding stations.
