Hey there, welcome to JJ Cardinal’s Wild Bird & Nature Store! We are eager to share our love of the spaces outside of our homes with the creatures and plants with which we coexist. When you’re in the Grand Blanc area please stop and say “hi”!
We’re glad you’re here!
Showing consideration and care in all our actions
We do this by providing a warm, non-judgemental, trustworthy and fun environment.

Friendship and an opportunity to just be in the moment is what we strive for .
Bird & Critter Food
You will not find “filler” seeds in any JJ Cardinal's Custom Blends! Each week we bring in fresh feed from a Michigan supplier. Our bulk bins allow us to customize package size that suites your storage availability, whether that is 5 or 50 lbs`. We will also fill clean containers you bring into the store to help reduce landfill waste. Our selection of feed includes blends for Cardinals and Finches. We have seed that will not leave debri and we carry seed that will not attract blackbirds, starling, crackles and squirrels. Of course, we offer food for hummingbirds, orioles, blue birds and the other creatures that visit you home.

Why we don’t have a shopping cart
JJ Cardinal’s is a location that needs to be experienced in person to be appreciated. We do offer purchases over the phone or via email for guests who are unable to come in, but not an online shopping cart. We sincerely believe that we need to have a conversation with you to understand your needs. When providing food and shelter for birds and other critters each situation is different. We want to make sure that you get the products that meet your needs and given situation. We want to provide the specialized service you deserve. While we have standard products we keep on the shelf, the store is constantly getting in new and unique items to keep things fresh and exciting. With such a wide variety of ever changing items, it would be impossible to show them all on our web pages. If there is something you are looking for, let us know. If the product is in the range of products we sell we will do our best to get it for you.
