Chestnut-backed Chickadee

Watch The Birds Pick The Right Seed!

Birds enjoy different types of seed, so it’s important to get the right blend for the birds you want to attract. With Wild Birds Unlimited’s custom seed blends, you can attract a variety of birds to your backyard feeders without wasting seed.

Watch as the birds pick and choose among the seeds to get just the right one! Chickadees and nuthatches will be particularly picky eaters. Studies have shown that these birds will weigh their seeds to make sure they get the heaviest one!

If you want to attract birds that feed at tube or hopper feeders, get a blend that contains the larger seeds, such as black oil sunflower, striped sunflower, sunflower chips and safflower, which these birds prefer. Our WBU Supreme Blend is perfect for these birds. If you want to attract a larger variety of birds including those that feed on the ground, try the WBU Deluxe Blend which includes white millet.

Our Certified Birdfeeding Specialists can help you choose the blend that’s right for you, and show you the wide range of premium specialty seeds designed to attract specific species.
