The Nature Store

Due to COVID-19, The Nature Store at Greenwich Audubon Center is currently closed to in-person shopping. However, we are happy to offer contact-less sales and curbside order pickup of a selection of birdseed and feeders.

Placing bird feeders outside in fall and winter is a wonderful way of attracting birds and providing them with essential food sources! When you put up bird feeders, not only does it help the birds, but it also provides you with a unique experience to view an incredible variety of birds up close from the comfort of your own home!

Our expert staff can help guide you in deciding which bird feeders and birdseed types will work best for you. We have a variety of bird feeders from window feeders, which are great for apartments, to Squirrel Busters—a great choice for many bird species and for keeping out squirrels! We also have a variety of birdseed types to support a variety of birds as well as suet cakes and suet feeders—a favorite for woodpeckers and nuthatches.

Please see below for the options that we currently carry. If there are additional items you’re looking for, we can help create a custom order for you and order additional items that you may need upon request.

TO PLACE YOUR ORDER and for questions, please contact Bird Education Specialist Ryan MacLean at 203-930-1353 and Ryan.MacLean@audubon.org. Once we take your order over the phone, we will work with you to arrange a time for you to stop by to pick up your order during our center business hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
