Good bird supply store – I've been going to It's a BIrds Life for many years, for the quality of products, the desire to support local business efforts, and the personal service. The owners, past and present, are knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and human. The prices are a bit higher than the 'junk' you might find for the same item at a big-box retailer, but as with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Aside from the birdfeed, the other products are beautiful, functional, higher-quality, and creative. I also love being greeted by a friendly cat or two when entering!
Wonderful Store and Owners – We moved up to this area over 5 years ago and searched for a place with fresh, healthy choices for the birds we were attracting to our back yard. It's A Birds Life is our favorite place to go.
It saddens me to see the one review here, I cannot think of a time where I wasn't greated as I walked in--- if not by an adult, then a (friendly) cat!
This location is full of bird food supplies, birding books, and really cute gifts--never the run of the mill trinkets that fall apart or don't work that a big box store will sell.
I feel comfortable to roam, I feel comfortable to ask questions. I found out that I have a unique view during the summer when the Belted King Fishers start training the babies from our back yard pond. Not many staffs would identify the bird and then teach you about the habits--- this group did.
I and my husband love this store and will go out of our way to purchase our supplies here. If you want quality, fresh food for the animals in your yard--- this is the place to go. They care, profoundly, about wild life in our area.
Once they have your money they forget about you – The store is dirty and the products are overpriced. It's a wonder this place is still in business. If you can get the sale staff to help you be prepared to be directed to the most expensive, over priced items in this store. I wouldn't give this place even one star but I wasn't able to put in zero!
Great selection of feed - and expert knowledge from staff about what to use in any situation – Small staff all know customers by name - extremely friendly welcome. Will go out of their way to accomodate any request. For us 'older' customers, always willing to help carry purchases without being condescending. Spend time with customers so that you feel part of their 'family'.
