Jim Parrott:

Attracting & Keeping Purple Martins & Bluebirds


Wed., Apr 12, 2017 @ 7:00 PM

Forest Park Nature Center

Jim Parrott, from the local Wild Birds Unlimited, will be on hand to tell all about attracting and keeping purple martins and bluebirds. Find out what makes a good house. What is a good habitat and what do I need to do to be successful?

Jim and Deb Parrott opened their Wild Birds Unlimited store in Peoria in November of 1999. Since then they have gained much experience about feeding, housing and identifying our backyard birds.

Wild Birds Unlimited provides a wide selection of quality products and bird foods. They take pride in solving problems that their customers may come up with. Most of the time there is a solution.

According to Jim, the motto at Wild Birds Unlimited is “We bring people and nature together.”
