We’re glad you’re here!

We’re an independently owned and operated retail store specializing in wild bird supplies in Ellicott City, Maryland. We offer a variety of items for the backyard birding enthusiast, as well as other products to add to your enjoyment and appreciation of nature.

You can purchase many of our products — bird feeders & houses, seed, suet, nectar, and miscellaneous accessories — from our online store.

We carry a larger selection of these items in our store, and we also carry many other items that — because of size/weight restrictions or other limitations — aren’t offered for sale online. Visit our store to check out items like these:

  • Shepherd’s hooks and pole systems.
  • Cement birdbaths.
  • Books & CDs.
  • Artwork from local artists, including notecards and hand-thrown pottery.
  • Jewelry & gifts.
  • Gift cards are available for local use, but they can’t be used for online purchases.

We’re expanding our product offerings every day, so be sure to check back often to see the latest products and promotions!
