When was the last time you really took a close look at the birds coming to your feeders? With quality optics from Wild Birds Unlimited you'll certainly be amazed at the things you can observe!
Consider the woodpecker that's outside on the WBU suet feeder; it's probably the same one that's been coming around for years. It's an old friend, so what could you possibly see that you haven't seen before?
Well, how about its tail feathers used to prop itself up against the feeder or the tree? When you observe a woodpecker as it lands, you'll notice that it uses its long tail feathers to brace himself. The woodpecker's unique tail is just one of its many natural adaptations you can witness as it visits your feeders.
Our Certified Birdfeeding Specialists love to hear about your observations and will be excited to help you take a closer look at our new expanded offering of binoculars and scopes. We have a wide selection that fits any budget!
We guarantee the lowest prices in the U.S.A. on Vortex & Eagle Optics binoculars! Stop by and take a look!
