While bird houses primarily accommodate cavity nesting birds, there are several other products which appeal to a wider variety of nesting birds including goldfinches, cardinals, and hummingbirds. All birds need materials with which to build their nests and our WBU Nest Building Material and Nesting Material can be used by birds to build their nests. We also offer sturdy hardware to mount your bird house on. This is useful in outdoor spaces without trees or fences for hanging houses on, as well as for birds that prefer to have a taller bird house with a clear flight path such as bluebirds and swallows.

Alpaca Fleece Nesting MaterialAlpaca Fleece Nesting Material: Birds often use fur from a wide variety of other animals as nest-building materials. Our Alpaca Fleece Nesting Material is an easy way to offer your birds the materials they need for their home-building needs. Many birds actively seek fur as a nesting material during the breeding season as they use fur to line the inside of the nest to give their young ones a nice cozy place to grow. Alpaca fleece is an ideal fur to offer as it is soft, dense, and fine. A little alpaca fleece goes a long way in building a nest. Birds including chickadees, wrens, nuthatches, goldfinches, and orioles are especially fond of fur when building their nest. Simply hang it up using our WBU Suet Cages, WBU Peanut Ball Feeder, or the Birdie Bell and let your birds take what they need to create a place of their own. Also, be sure to shop through our other birding supplies to get the most joy out of your hobby!

WBU Wood ShavingsWBU Wood Shavings: Our WBU Wood Shavings are made from pine trees and provide an annual replenishment of nesting material for woodpeckers, ducks, owls, and a variety of other birds which excavate their wood shavings.  Wood shavings resemble the bits of wood a bird would typically excavate from a nesting cavity. They provide a bit of bedding for the nest and also encourage birds to nest because they resemble a natural situation. Wood shavings are better than sawdust, which can mat down and retain moisture.
