Our lease expired December 31 but the new store we are building at 5715 W Lovers Lane near the tollway and next door to Nicholson-Hardie Garden Center is not ready. We hope to be outfitting the store by the end of February so we can open sometime in late March. The building boom in Dallas and the weather can easily delay us even more, so check our website and watch your inbox for updates.
In the meantime, please shop one of the other Metroplex Wild Birds Unlimited stores. Please check each store's website because hours of operation vary.

The closest one to our store is at 6333 East Mockingbird Lane, Dallas TX 75214, which is the NW corner of Mockingbird and Abrams in East Dallas in the Tom Thumb Shopping Center. It's on the corner of the shopping center on the Mockingbird side and you can't miss it.
Ron and his friendly staff are honoring the Daily Savings Club 15% discount on birdfood products if your name is on the list that we have provided them. DSC members will not accumulate birdbuck points but will get the birdfood discount.
Thank your for your patronage for the past 22 years! We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and your birds (and squirrels). We'll see you soon in our brand new store near the tollway.
Happy New Year and Happy Birdfeeding!
P.S. This is a really good year for goldfinches. Make sure you start out with fresh thistle (Nyjer). Hang the feeder where it is visible to finches flying overhead, not tucked up under an eave or arbor if you can help it. Fill the feeder 3/4 of the way full with fresh thistle and shake up the seed once a week until you have finches. Then you can fill the feeder all the way.
At this time of year, if you don't attract finches within 2 weeks, we recommend you relocate the feeder. Sometimes all it takes is moving the feeder a little further out from the trunk of the tree. Maybe the goldfinches don't find the feeders because they can't see them as they pass by overhead, or maybe they feel susceptible to predation by Sharp-shinned Hawks and Cooper's Hawks when they are covered by limbs and leaves. We just don't know. What we can say after 22 years of feeding goldfinches in Dallas is that oftentimes they don't find feeders that are hung under man-made structures or near the trunks of evergreen trees like Magnolias, Live Oaks, Eastern Red Cedars or Yaupon Hollies. If the holly or cedar is a female and has berries on it, a mockingbird may be guarding the berries. It will chase away other birds even though the goldfinches are not interested in the least in the berries.
