We started Mr.Bird in 1996 when we owned an independent wild bird supply store in San Antonio, Texas. In helping our customers we could see a demand for a better way to feed birds; loose seed would often be wasted and suet would melt in our hot summers. Also, for some reason, birds in our area just wouldn't eat suet. So our first seed and nut blocks were designed to train birds to come to the suet feeders, once the birds were used to the feeder they could then be switched to suet. Imagine our surprise when no one wanted to make the change to suet. Our blocks looked good, felt good, smelled good, and the birds went crazy for them. Why mess with messy suet?
The only complaint about our first bird seed block was its small size. We quickly designed and introduced our three sizes of cylinders with a totally original holder. Now birds were not limited to a few seed ports on a feeder and now seed couldn't be thrown to the ground to sprout and attract unwanted critters. A better way to feed was truly at hand. Now thousands of dealers, hundreds of thousands of bird lovers, and millions of birds prove Mr.Bird is the best way to feed.
When you talk to us you are talking to "bird-people". We've been in your shoes; buying and selling bird products at retail, always looking for quality products that the customers will love that they can't pick up in every discount store. We know what it is like to deal with difficult vendors and vow that we will never be considered anything but pleasant and easy to work with. We value every account no matter the size. Remember, we started in our kitchen, expanded into our laundry room and then grew into our garage. Now though we occupy a 35,000 82,000 sq. ft building, we still purchase our supplies from the vendors that started with us when we were tiny and stuck with us through the lean times.
We are also old school Texans. Our word is as good as any contract. We treat our customers and our suppliers the way we hope to be treated. With honesty and integrity, period.
There is nothing in the world we would rather be doing than making quality products to help people enjoy nature. So please, feed the birds, they're hungry....
