Community and Conservation at Heart

The next time you make a purchase of bird feeding supplies or anything else ask yourself 'How much of your dollars are going back in to your community or causes you believe in?.   At Wild Birds Unlimited in Hockessin, Delaware we don't hide behind these brick walls. We take part in making the community we live in a better place.   We partner and support many local organizations and causes that are dear to our hearts. We hope you'll help them and the missions they uphold.
Thank You, Charles and Kathy Shattuck
