Bringing the Birds to Your Yard

Stuff We Love
March 23, 2024

May is the prime birding month in northern Michigan, but with spring making a slightly earlier appearance than usual, now’s the time to stock up on gear so you don’t miss a single flash of feathers. Your first stop: Wild Birds Unlimited in Traverse City, home to bird feeders, bird baths, bird houses, bird seed—basically if the word "bird" is in the name, you can find it there. Oh, and let’s not forget live mealworms, nesting material, windchimes, and all kinds of home garden décor. Find the shop at 1211 East Front Street in Campus Plaza (just before the start of the Grandview Parkway reconstruction at the Garfield/US-31 intersection). And if you can’t make it in, call (231) 946-0431 or visit order.wbu.com/traversecity; orders over $75 are delivered free of charge.

Detour Destination! Northern Express is committed to highlighting businesses in the construction zones of northern Michigan this season.
