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.

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.

Let's Go Birding | Saturday Morning Bird Walks, Workshops, and Tours
Let's Go Birding is the tour division of The Los Gatos Birdwatcher.
Our mission is to get you into different habitats where you can experience a variety of species not found at home. Because of county regulations we have not been allowed to gather but as precautions lift, we are planning a few activities for Spring. Registration is required via email — info@losgatosbirdwatcher.com — limited to 12 people. Masks will be required and social distancing will be practiced.
