Seed. It Makes Us Essential.

Palettes of bird seed at The Los Gatos Birdwatcher At times over the last several months we have run out of seed. Supply chain shortages during the pandemic paired with the welcomed new challenge of keeping up with higher demand, caused disruptions in seed supply here at the store. We thank all of our customers for being patient.

Project FeederWatch Discussion

SATURDAY, OCT. 23, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
at the Los Gatos Birdwatcher

Come on down to the store to learn how to be a part of this scientific study. Customer and FeederWatch contributor, Ellyn Bush will be here to answer your FeederWatch questions. Says Ellyn, “It's really easy to contribute to this annual study and it's a lot of fun too. Plus, the data we provide to Cornell is important.” Project FeederWatch is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Bird Studies Canada and takes place annually from November thru April. With FeederWatch, you become a scientist in your own backyard and your counts roll up into the grand survey of birds that visit all locales in N. America.
