The Des Moines Feed & Nature Center Difference

If you’ve noticed that much of the wild bird food you use ends up on your lawn, it’s likely because that food hasn’t been cleaned and includes fillers. Often, mass-produced bird feed hasn’t been cleaned and includes fillers. This leads to birds picking debris and fillers out of the feed and tossing it on the ground. The feed we offer has been cleaned, and features non-GMO grains. You’ll notice the difference immediately.

Attracting Wild Birds

It takes more than a bird bath to attract wild birds—you need to recognize their habits. Our experts are familiar with birds native to Iowa and the Midwest, so they can help create a yard that birds want to call home. Choosing the right feed and feeders to help entice wild birds to visit starts with knowing what kind of birds you’d like to see. For instance, if you’re interested in drawing larger birds to your yard, you’ll need a sturdier feeder. Remember, Midwest winters can be harsh, so feeders should be built to withstand even the coldest winter weather. Learn more about the most common birds found in Iowa year round and tips on attracting them to your yard.
