About The Bird Store

We offer fresh premium wild bird seed, quality bird houses & feeders.

Meet Barb, owner of The Bird Store

I was introduced to Birding in 2001 by my father in-law.  He brought me a little bird identifier book and asked me if I had ever considered feeding the birds, to which I said no but he did tweak my interest and pretty soon, I was a regular at  the Orangeville bird store.

Living in the country, there were very different birds from in town and it didn’t take long for me to have unique birds like Indigo Bunting, Eastern Bluebirds and Cedar Waxwings.  It has always brought me joy over the years, to watch the birds and their families coming to my feeders and having real quality birdseed to eat.  When I moved out of the area, I realized that quality bird seed was harder to get and other bird stores were very limited in what they carried.

In early June, I was driving along First Street and realized For The Birds had closed and had a For Rent sign in the window.  I called the landlord and told him of my plan to reopen the store and put it back for the people that loved it.  I am so glad to say that he agreed with me and this is how The Bird Store came back to life.

I tracked down the original suppliers to the store and they also have been very helpful in guiding me along to fill the store with products that the locals have come to love and expect here.  We have the Special Blend that everyone loves, in 3 different sizes, Roasted Peanuts, Garden Friendly Blend, Wild Finch Feast, Safflower, Peanut halves, Niger seed, hulled sunflower and 5 different sizes of Black Oil Sunflower to keep the people happy.  We also carry 5 different kinds of fresh suet and nut and seed cylinders to make the birds happy.

On a different note, people have been asking about puzzles so I tracked them down and found the supplier for Cobble Hill Puzzles and Crystal Art Craft Kits which the store now stocks. 

I have always intended for the store to expand and have an on line presence where people can shop from home.  I am happy to report that we are on our way to make this happen.  The store is currently open Monday to Saturday from  9:30 am to 5:00 pm and I look forward to meeting all the locals that enjoy the store like I did!
