Cheryl "Birdie" Miller is the proud owner of WBU McKinney and has been feeding the birds for over 30 years. She is a certified Bird Feeding Specialist, member of the McKinney Chamber of Commerce, Prairie and Timber Audubon Society, a Crape Myrtle Trails Board Member, Heard Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary Board Member and is a Planning Committee Member for the McKinney Monarch Initiative.
Her mother and father raised her well, to love learning (as both were educators) and to always find laughter in life. Her father was a biologist/zoologist/botanist and a college professor who taught her how to appreciate nature and love the birds.
"I have been a Wild Birds Unlimited customer for many years, and as I was driving the traffic filled hour and 20 minutes home one day from the Dallas shop, I thought that maybe there were people like me in Collin County that would love to have a place close by to get their backyard bird feeding needs met. That is the moment I decided to open my McKinney shop!"
