Our owners are their local communities' backyard birdfeeding specialists and a premier source of nature information as well as quality products. But who we are goes far beyond the items we sell. It's our owners' commitment to their customers that distinguishes them from other retailers, a fact that makes us very proud. They enjoy helping their customers understand birds and nature, swapping stories about the latest bird sightings and seeing other people share their excitement.
Our stores are more than a birder's paradise, however. They are resources for unique nature gifts, decorative lawn and garden accessories and a variety of natural home and personal care products.
