Los Gatos Birdwatcher
Welcome to The Los Gatos Birdwatcher. The Store for Nature Lovers.

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.
