The full line of wild bird feeders, nature themed gifts, bird baths, and bird houses offered in our bird store will enhance your enjoyment of wild birds, and bring more species to your yard. We will help you choose the right bird feeder because we know how to attract birds, whether it is a hummingbird feeder that doesn’t spill in the wind or thistle feeders for the finches or perhaps a suet feeder that discourages starlings. Our products were chosen by our research as ornithologists, in our yard, and in the yards of other bird experts.
We have tested our products in the hot Arizona sun and the cold South Dakota winters. Our line of bird feeders and other products will stand up to both extremes. Our birdfeeders, many with lifetime guarantees, and other products can fill any requirement you may have to make your yard a backyard bird habitat. Once your yard is perfect, why not celebrate by posting a metal all weather wildlife sanctuary sign? Or, pick out that perfect coffee mug to help brighten your mornings. Why not share your interest in birds and inspire others by giving the perfect nature gift to your family and friends?
After 35+ years as professional ornithologists and having worked in all regions of the United States we are familiar with what birds are in your area and can help you pick the right specialty feeder, right bird bath or right bird house. We want your bird feeding experience to be successful and fun. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about bird feeders, bird identification or to report a great bird you have just seen. We are always happy if we are talking about nature.
When using snake tongs and snake hooks safety counts, so, quality counts. That is why we offer a full line of top quality, professional snake tongs and snake hooks by Midwest. We can also provide you with Zoo Med reptile, amphibian, and invertebrate supplies. Let’s be honest, you want to be able to care for your pet in the best way possible. These are top quality reptile foods, reptile medications and supplements and reptile supplies. We can help the novice just getting into herptoculture or the experienced herptoculturist.
Now that you have everything you could possibly need to enjoy reptiles and amphibians, why not show that your head is into reptiles and invertebrates by finding the perfect cap to wear? These caps have an embroidered design to insure long wear and an adjustable buckle so they will fit most people. Perhaps you would like to announce to the world (or warn some silly people who don’t know the pleasures of reptiles) that reptiles have the right of way by adding a reptile crossing sign to your house? Add a coffee mug to start your morning right and you are our kind of herp nut!
After 30+ years “in the field” and conducting many reptile and amphibian studies in all regions of the country we can help you with any herp questions. Plus, we have maintained many species of reptiles in captivity, so please take advantage of our experience by contacting us with any questions you may have or even if you have a great siting for reptiles or amphibians in your area. Please also tell us about your experiences with pet reptiles. Remember, we are Herp Nuts and truly enjoy visiting with other Herp Nuts.
