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.

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains and is most famous for the 40- acre grove of towering old-growth redwood trees.

This mountain habitat offers species we do not get on the valley oor including Allen's Hummingbirds, Pileated Woodpeckers, Swainson's Thrush, Wilson's Warbler, Black-throated Gray Warbler, Brown Creeper and Pacific Wren. This tour will consist of walking level trails in this park. We’ll also stop at the visitor’s center. Biologist Ryan Phillips will help Lisa co- lead this tour.

Call the store to reserve your seat.

Fee: $65 and includes park entrance fee and transportation.
