Flora and Fauna Nature Company

Well, the good people at the Flora and Fauna Nature Company have started stocking their shelves with our suet! We are very excited and we look forward to growing a small business.

Our suet is (we think) the highest-quality suet on the market. Our Everyday Blend has rendered fat, peanut butter, black oil sunflower seeds (whole), sunflower chips, filberts, almonds, pistachios, walnuts, peanuts, cashews, nyjer seed, oats, cracked corn, crushed oyster shells, millet and flour. Every cake is stuffed full of seed and nuts. We have tested it against many other suet cakes and it is far and away better than any other we have found. The Flora and Fauna Nature Company is selling it right now for $3.99 a cake or 3 cakes for $9.99.


The suet in our yard has been enjoyed by Bushtits, Black-Capped and Chestnut-Backed Chickadees, many types of Woodpeckers, many types of Warblers, White-Breasted and Red-Breasted Nuthatches, Wrens, Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, Juncos, quite a few species of Sparrow, Scrub and Steller's Jays, and Black-Headed Grosbeaks.

Yellow-Rumped Warbler

We have shipped suet to many parts of the country and has been popular with birds everywhere.

An odd looking American Goldfinch

We don't know if this was just left over from his summer colors or a permanent marking. But it looked cool!

So please give our suet a try and let us know how it's working in your yard. Take care and good birding!

A few photos

Here are a few photos of some regular residents in our yard. Hope you enjoy them!

An Oregon Junco deciding which sunflower seed looks the best. We are getting about 20-25 juncos a day now. In winter, we usually have around a 100 or so in the yard at any given time.

One of the many Flickers we get in the yard.

We had 5 in the yard at the same time yesterday. Last winter, we had nine at once! Yes, we go through lots o' suet.

A Black-Capped Chickadee that was nice enough to pose for a couple of photos.

They usually don't hold still long enough for me to get the shot.
