The Los Gatos Birdwatcher has started its 25th year specializing in everything you can do to enjoy the wild birds with whom we share our Earth — from healthy backyard habitats to guided tours around the world. Our customers depend upon us for fresh bird seed, feeders, baths, field guides, optics & unique gifts.
Our mission is to educate, share adventures, and have fun through the love and experience of birds and nature. Visit us at our store in Los Gatos, California.
