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.

If You Find a Baby Bird

If you find what you think is an orphaned baby bird on the ground, we encourage you to leave it alone and watch from a distance to see its parents come down to feed it. Several different species of birds actually leave the nest a few days before they can fly. If you suspect the bird has been orphaned or injured, click here to learn what to do.
