The WBU Difference

  Each of our blends is regionally formulated to attract the birds that live in your area. We do not include filler cereal grains like oats, wheat and milo that decrease the price per pound of a mix because these filler seeds are less attractive (or not attractive) to birds. Because there is no wasted seed, our blends actually end up costing less to use while attracting more of the birds that you want to watch. The difference really is amazing. We have many different straight seeds and seed blend to choose from; each formulated to attract specific birds, and to fill certain feeders.

Many have asked why we do not post our Seed Prices here on the website.

Current seed prices vary depending on whether or not you have the Daily Savings Club Membership or if there is a Seed Sale.  As a Daily Savings Club Member, you save 15% Everyday on Birdfood Purchases.  In store we can investigate your purchase history and see if the DSC is right for you!  There is also a section on our website where you can read the details on the program and decide for yourself.

Feel free to contact us via email or by phone @ 204-667-2161 for further details on specific seed pricing.  For those doing their Seed Researching:  We do not sell in Bulk, only in 2lb, 5lb, 10lb and 20lb Quantities.

Black Oil Sunflower:

  A favorite of almost all seed-eating birds, your feathered friends will happily fill up on our Premium Oil Sunflower. It's a great source of energy for the birds and 99% free of sticks, stems or other foreign matter so your feeders won't clog with debris. Oil sunflower has a high calorie/ounce ratio due to its high fat and protein content and its relatively thin shell. Among seed ingredients, oil sunflower attracts the greatest variety of small and large seed-eating birds. Studies by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology have shown that most birds prefer oil sunflower seeds to both striped sunflower and white proso millet. Fill your feeders with this top-grade fuel, and watch the birds flock.

 

Deluxe Blend:

  Our Deluxe Blend attracts a wide variety of birds. Perfect in our Classic feeder, this blend is full of black oil sunflower seeds, millet, striped sunflower and safflower and is bound to satisfy a bevy of birds in your backyard. Oil sunflower and safflower lovers like chickadees, will enjoy this blend at the feeder, and juncos, sparrows, doves and sparrows will feast on the white millet on the ground.

Supreme Blend:

  A Staff Favorite:  Our Supreme Blend features black oil sunflower, striped sunflower, millet and sunflower chips in a combination that helps attract a wide variety of birds such as chickadees, nuthatches, grosbeaks, and woodpeckers. Try feeding Supreme Blend in your hopper feeders and tube feeders.

No Mess Blend:

  Tired of the huge mess of sunflower shells on the ground under your feeders? Well put your rake away because our WBU No Mess Blend takes care of all your birdfeeding woes. This special blend is specially formulated to attract birds in Manitoba. It includes shelled sunflower, shelled peanuts, and a small amount of shelled millet. No shells means NO MESS!

Nyjer:

  Nyjer® (thistle) attracts finches of all kinds. Its high oil content is an excellent energy source for active birds and is best used in our specially designed finch feeders. It is important to keep the food fresh for our picky little eaters. Nyjer has a thin shell and is vulnerable to spoilage while in the tube. Once seed starts to dry out and become stale, finches will turn up their beak for fresher forage. Replace Nyjer seed in feeders every three to four weeks if it is not being actively eaten. Store your Nyjer in an airtight container for a longer shelf life, and buy in quantities that will be used up in a few weeks.

Also, ask our Certified Birdfeeding Specialists about our Finch Mix Seed Blend, it includes not just Nyjer, but also crushed sunflower, a great alternate for winter finch feeding.

Corn Cobs - A Dried Corn Cob is fun and entertaining for many Blue Jays and Squirrels. Offer corn cobs on a Picnic Table Squirrel feeder or Treat Box to distract that furry fiend from your feeders!
