Maybe you've been working for 25 or 35 years, didn't have the time nor the interest in gardening or feeding the birds.
Maybe it just didn't matter to you,'that's for people with too much time on their hands'.
Well, let me tell you. I was one of those people.
Once I got into it, slowly learning, adding a new feeder, watching what birds came to it,I was truly appreciating nature for the first time.
Then the flowers, what birds or butterflies are attracted to what flowers, then the hummingbird and oriole feeders, then the bird baths....it's like an oasis in your own backyard...
It's an inexpensive vacation, a grounding experience and tranquility all rolled into one.

I learned all of this from the folks at The Bird House. I can't thank them enough.

Stop. Slow down. Take a moment. Breathe.

I'm less fond of The Bird House than I used to be. The staff are still very nice and helpful, the selection of wild bird seed is impressive and of high quality, their seed bank service is very useful, and they have an adorable sooty white cat with blue eyes, but (1) their prices are too high, which matters more now that the economy is collapsing, (2) they're starting to exclude some popular types of seed from their semiannual 5-for-4 sale without sufficient notice, and (3) more than once they've tried to charge me more than the marked price. They seem to consult a price list behind the counter and charge what it says regardless of what price is marked. I doubt that that's legal, and I know it isn't ethical. Once I was asked to pay almost twice the posted price for a 50lb bag of safflower seed because "they're using safflower seed to make ethanol so our price went up." If that's true, they should have taken the time to write the new price on the chalkboard in the seed room. I didn't find out until after I'd carried the 50lb bag through the garden ornaments labyrinth to the register. It happened another time with a gallon jug of thistle seed. That one was easier to put back, but I shouldn't have to be on guard against cheating in an upscale store like this.

They have such a nice selection of things. Different feeders and houses. Lots of wind chimes too, very pretty. I go here to purchase gifts for my mother in law and my husband both love birding. Both of them are always happy to receive a gift from the bird house.

I bought a really cute bird house for my father for his birthday. I was surprised to see they offered gift certificates, and would exchange my purchas if he didnt like it. The Bird House is a unique store catering to the bird lover. They have an assortment of bird houses from big to small and a nice array of decorations for sprucing up your yard.
