How to Attract More Birds with Bark Butter®

 

NOW THROUGH THE END OF JUNE: DSC MEMBERS BUY ONE BARK BUTTER PRODUCT AND GET A SECOND ONE FREE!

 

No bird food attracts more species of birds than Jim's Birdacious® Bark Butter® (click here for a comprehensive list of bird species who eat it). Created by Jim Carpenter, founder of Wild Birds Unlimited, Bark Butter is a spreadable suet that can be easily smeared on tree bark or a Bark Butter Feeder to attract birds such as chickadees, nuthatches, catbirds, cardinals, mockingbirds, wrens, woodpeckers, towhees, Brown Creepers, grosbeaks, robins and more. This exclusive food option is made from suet, peanut butter and corn for a high energy treat your birds will love.

We also carry Jim's Birdacious® Bark Butter® Bits, which are bite-sized nuggets are made of rendered beef suet, peanut oil, roasted peanuts, corn, oats and calcium carbonate and allow you to easily offer Bark Butter to attract a variety of birds, including many that do not normally visit feeders. They are particularly popular among birds during the nesting season when a Bark Butter® Bit can be carried by parent birds to feed to their young. The nutrients in these products help with feather production, as well as with second clutches of eggs which are often laid around this time.

 

 

Bark butter products can also be used in conjunction with feeders such as the one pictured below. Simply open the door, spread the Bark Butter inside, and you're good to go! This feeder is perfect for woodpeckers whose long tongues reach inside, but also excludes Starlings whose tongues cannot reach. Attract native birds with a Bark Butter station of your own!
