Los Gatos Birdwatcher
Welcome Bird Lovers!
Welcome to the Los Gatos Birdwatcher. We are the nature lover’s general store, specializing in everything to do with bird feeding and bird watching, including seed, feeders, baths, hardware and optics. Also included in our offerings are clothing, jewelry, books, kids stuff and many great gift items. We are located in the King’s Court Center at the corner of Los Gatos Blvd. and Blossom Hill Road, in Los Gatos.

Our mission is to create magic and adventure through the love and experience of nature. In order to bring this mission to reality, we strive not just to be the best "general store for nature lovers" but also to be "not just a store but a community resource." We support and work closely with many partners in the environmental arena.

We offer a complete line of products to help you enjoy wild birds and foster a healthy backyard habitat.

Small Business Saturday Kicks Off Our Anniversary Celebration!
Small Business Saturday is November 26

Small Business Saturday encourages everyone to do their holiday shopping at small, local businesses like the Los Gatos Birdwatcher. It is also the day we will kick-off our one year anniversary celebration! That’s right — December 1st marks my one year anniversary as owner of the Los Gatos Birdwatcher. While the store is celebrating 21 years at the Kings Court Shopping Center, I took over last December when Freddy & John retired. In celebration of the anniversary and a thank you to all our customers, we have an exciting raffle planned. For every $10 you spend between Nov. 26–Dec. 1 you will receive a raffle ticket. We will have special raffle packages displayed throughout the store & you decide how to use your tickets. We will pick the winners on Friday, Dec. 2. Raffle items include a binocular-birder raffle package, a children’s nature package, a hummingbird feeder package, a bird feeder package and a bird house package.
