"Attracting birds in more than putting up feeders; it's ensuring that all the elements birds and native wildlife need to survive and thrive are present."

Our mission is to supply the avid birder and nature enthusiast with quality products and to attract and educate new people to the hobby of birding and the appreciation of nature.

We Are Not Your Average Bird Store

We have a great selection of bird houses, bird feeders, bird guides, garden art, and wonderful nature-inspired gifts.

We have National Wildlife Federation Certified Habitat Stewards on staff to answer your questions and help you create the wildlife habitat in your backyard that you've always wanted.

If you're having problems with squirrels, we can help you defeat them with squirrel-proof feeders that work or pole-and-squirrel-proof baffle set-ups that will keep them off your feeding pole or post.

Master Naturalist Taylor Piephoff will lead these walks along the Four Mile Creek Greenway in Piper Glen. This is a flat greenway along the creek and is either paved or on a boardwalk the entire length. We walk down to the cattail marsh and back, 2-3 hours at a leisurely pace, starting at Bird House.

Walks are $5 per person, which goes to Taylor for his time and expertise. Since we limit the number of people to smaller groups, please only register if you are sure that you can make it, so we don't waste any slots.

If you are interested in registering, click REGISTER below. If the walks sell out, there will be a waitlist in case of cancellations. So make sure you put yourself on the waitlist if there are no more slots.

We were invited to appear on the Fabulous Francene Marie show to talk about the birds and the bees (and butterflies). It was a great conversation with a great lady! Click to listen to the show in case you missed it.

Don't Touch That Nest!

Don't remove the nest once the chicks have fledged!
Once mama gets those birds weaned, she will put a fresh layer of straw on the old nest and start her next brood.
If you remove the nest, you may cause her to go elsewhere for the second batch, so resist the urge!
Unless something tragic or gross happens (dead babies, smashed eggs), just leave it alone!
