We carry so many birdbaths it is hard to describe exactly what you might find at our store.

We have recirculating fountains, big and small. We have Water Wigglers! We also have Drippers & Misters of all sorts to wet-it-up around your birdbath. Want to keep it clean and healthy around your water works, we have all sorts of cleaners and Mosquito inhibitors.
Tip: What can I put in my bird bath to keep it clean?
We do not recommend putting anything in your bird bath to keep it clean. Every other day you should empty the bath, scrub it with a brush and rinse it well. Refill with fresh water. If the algae builds up quickly, you can use a ten parts water to one part bleach solution to clean the bird bath. Be sure to rinse well and place fresh water in the bath.
Window feeders are exciting feeders, because they attract the birds to within a few inches of you. Movement inside the house will scare the birds momentarily, but they soon come back. We recommend placing these feeders near your breakfast window so as you sip your coffee you have a "close encounter" with nature to start the day. Young children are especially thrilled to see birds so close, as are the aged or infirm who cannot see birds at a distant feeder.
Another way to get a close-up view of your favorite birds is by keeping a pair of binoculars handy. You’ll be amazed at how binoculars can increase your enjoyment of birds by bringing the details up close. Whether it’s identifying birds in the field or enjoying an afternoon of watching birds at your feeder, we have a mini, compact or standard size binocular for you.
It all started with the Classic Bird Feeder. Classic Bird Feeder. In 1990, Jim Carpenter, founder, president and CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, set out to create the perfect wooden bird feeder. He designed a stylish, durable and easily maintainable feeder that offered the one feature found in no other feeder - the ability to see birds feeding better.
That day, the Wild Birds Unlimited Classic Hopper Feeder was born. Its design has kept its integrity for over 15 years and has become the symbol for the Wild Birds Unlimited franchise.
Throughout the years, we've made sure that all our feeders, whether hoppers, seed tubes, finch feeders, or wild bird feeders offer that same feature - the ability to see birds feeding better.
In fact, from a functional point-of-view, the following characteristics are built into all our bird feeders:
• All birds are visible to the viewer
• It is easily hung or post-mounted
• It is easy to fill
• It is easy to clean
• It is sturdy and weathers well
• Your satisfaction is guaranteed
We want you to have the best possible experience from your bird feeding hobby. And that all starts with high-quality wild bird feeders and bird seed.
