November can be so overlooked. It would be easy to move straight from the candy, costumes, and goblins of Halloween straight into the December holidays. But Thanksgiving and the month of November give us a chance to pause and offer thanks for all we have.
At Wild Birds Unlimited, November is a time for us to say thank you to our customers. It is just wonderful that so many of you share our passion for the birds and that you place your trust in us as you pursue this wonderful hobby.
We know we have something special here. Really special. You know it too. You confirm it every time you visit the shop, every time you come in to talk about your birds, and every time you choose to spend your dollars in our store. Thank you for helping to make Wild Birds Unlimited - Saratoga Springs a special place to be.
We love what we do and thank all our customers for being a part of it.

You may have spotted a few feathered out-of-towners that are sticking around for winter. Winter is a great time to look for uncommon bird species. Juncos and other sparrows and finches may be making a repeat appearance in your yard this winter and many of them come back to the same exact location each year.
Keep your feeders full and look for birds associated with “irruptions.” When natural winter food supplies are scarce in northern Canada, numerous bird species “irrupt,” migrating south in search of food. The most common irruptive birds are Pine Siskins, Purple Finches, Common Redpolls and Evening and Pine Grosbeaks. By offering the right food (in the right place), you can better your chances of attracting some of these birds.
Lovers of millet, you can attract Juncos to your yard by offering WBU Deluxe Blend in a ground feeder or hopper feeder. They’re persistent foragers and have been known to burrow through snow in search of seeds.
These “winter finches” are attracted to Finch Feeders filled with Nyjer® (thistle). You can also attract them to your Seed Tube Feeders by offering No-Mess NM Blend.
If they’re visiting your yard, be ready - they are hungry birds. For best results, offer Supreme Blend in a Hopper or Tray Feeder.
Before the 1850s, Evening Grosbeaks were not commonly found east of the Rocky Mountains. Now, winter irruptions can occur across the country.
As you can see, our feathered guests’ tastes and preferences vary, so it’s important to be prepared. Because before you know it, these out-of-towners will be just that - headed out of town. Visit us this month, and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to keep your resident birds happy and to attract these winter migrants.
Honestly, could they be more adorable? Your favorite characters like BUTTONS THE SNOWMAN, RASCAL THE RACCOON, and HOOT THE OWL are back!
And new this year are MILLIE THE BIRD and BLOSSOM THE SKUNK! Each is a mix of seeds, nuts and fruit - a great addition to any yard.
And you won't find them anywhere else but Wild Birds Unlimited..
