Owner Jim Carpenter opened the first Wild Birds Unlimited shop in Indianapolis in 1981 in order to turn his love of nature and bird watching into a full-time career. Today, Wild Birds Unlimited has spread to more than 275 stores across the United States and Canada, with each location helmed by avid ornithological enthusiasts. Wild Birds Unlimited visitors find a huge inventory of quality bird and bird-watching supplies, from feeders to birdbaths to binoculars. Guides make short work of identifying feathered tree dwellers, and the store's special seeds help attract elusive birds, such as the Boston Larry.
