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.

2022 Wildlife Calendar

Each month is filled with beautiful photos taken by our customers and submitted to our store's nature photo contest earlier in the year. We are proud to be able to present this calendar to our birding community. Thank you to all who participated and helped make this first ever store calendar happen.

Beginning Birding Class

New To Birding? Here is the class for you

with Instructor Lisa Myers

SATURDAY, NOV. 20, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

In the last year, many people have picked up binoculars and have started enjoying the birds they find in their neighborhoods or local parks. This class will review how to ID birds in the field, how birds get grouped together, how to find birds, how habitat and seasons affect what you will find, how to attract more birds to your yard, and much more. This will be a fun class geared for those new to birding. Call the store to register 408‑358‑9453. Fee $35

FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of the birds that visit all locales in North America. With FeederWatch, you become a scientist in your own backyard and your counts become part of something bigger. Learn more at feederwatch.org
