Spring is an amazing time to invite birds to your backyard. Providing high-quality foods with the right ingredients will provide a benefit to the birds and to you.

  • Limited Time Beauty: Attract the beauty, color and harmonics of migrating songbirds as they pass through your neighborhoods. Offer them a place to rest and refuel with our variety of Jim's Birdacious® Bark Butter® products, mealworms, seed blends, nectar and more. You’ll be amazed at who may stop in your yard for a few days.
  • Better Survival Rates: Parent birds with access to abundant, quality foods spend less time searching for food and more time selecting better nesting sites, constructing higher quality nests and protecting eggs and young from predators.
  • Baby’s First Steps: Abundant, quality food sources allow more baby birds to survive and thrive, allowing you to enjoy watching them grow, leave the nest and learn use your feeders. They will seek out foods full of protein and calcium.

Get Ready for a Fun-filled Season in Your Backyard

You made it through winter and as a reward, the next few months will bring some of nature’s most spectacular gifts.

 Spring migration brings a show with an ever-changing cast of characters passing through your yard, including hummingbirds, orioles and warblers. Next comes nesting season, a time to watch for bird parents bringing their noisy fledglings to your feeders. And it's fun to watch the adults, busy in your backyard habitat, as they glean pollinating insects to feed their ever-impatient youngsters.

Calcium for Nesting Birds

Being Seasonally Savvy: Give Nesting Birds a Hand

Calcium is the most challenging mineral for birds because when they need it, they need large quantities and they need it right away. This is mainly during nesting time for egg laying as well as chick development. The amount of calcium in their natural diet of seeds and insects is often inadequate and they must seek calcium-rich foods as a supplement. Ask us about the many bird foods we offer which include calcium to help your nesting birds

Our source of calcium is from oyster grit or limestone dust. Both are finely ground and easily consumed by small songbirds.

Be a seasonally savvy friend to your birds by providing them with the extra calcium they require during nesting season.
