NOVEMBER UPDATE
 

 

We have been anxiously waiting for the release of our new bird food products and they’re finally here!! 

 

Fiery Feast™ (No Mess NM Blend) and SunFire Chips™ (Sunflower Chips) have hot pepper added to deter critters.  The formulation has a much higher heat level than the competing hot pepper blends or seeds in the industry.  The birds will have more to eat since the squirrels, raccoons and other animals will not enjoy these products.

Winter SuperBlend™ is our highest fat seed blend, packed full of sunflower chips, pecans, peanuts, tree nuts, back butter bits and safflower.  It’s important to offer high fat foods during the winter months.  Birds must overcome cooler temperatures, storms and extended periods of darkness.  The birds have less daylight to forage for food in the winter, yet they need extra food that supplies the needed fat and energy to survive the long winter nights.

Winter SuperBlend™ is also available in a seed cylinder.  
 

Save during our "Customer Appreciation Event" November 1 – 21, 2018.  Stop by the shop andsave on all products in the shop.  Thank you for all of your stories, your friendship and your business. 

We are most grateful.

   

The annual Black Friday “Fill A Bag” sale will be held November 23.  Every product that fits into the

provided WBU Black Bag will be 20% off the regular price (Gift Cards, DSC Memberships, previous

purchases or sale items are excluded).

 

From December 2–23, 2018, we will be open on Sunday from 1:00–4:00.  Normal hours will resume on December 26, 2018 (9:30–6:30 Monday–Friday and 9:30–5:30 Saturdays).

 

The SC Bluebird Society will be raffling off an original painting by Mary Ann Brock, “Eastern Bluebird Pair on a Bluebird House”.  Raffle tickets are available at the shop for $5 each or5 tickets for $20.  Tickets will be sold at the shop until 11/10/18.

American Goldfinch have been observed in our area.  A few Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are still here. 

There still may be some migrating through, looking for food along the way.  Keep your feeders out!
