Birds for the Spring Garden - presented virtually

Bob Volkes

Bob and his wife Louise hatched the Gilligallou Bird on September 30, 2011, after 20 or so years in incubation.  We had always dreamed of opening our own backyard birding store, with both birds and birders in mind.  The approach was simple; we wanted to become Eastern Ontario’s Backyard Birding Specialty Store by providing an enhanced birding experience for our clients through quality seed, resources, and service.

After years of experimenting and investigation, we concluded that traditionally, most birdseed found in the marketplace was of poor quality, randomly filled and held a high percentage of filler.  Not only was the majority of seed low in food value for the birds, but it, in turn, was becoming of very poor value to the consumer.

We decided we were going to change that. The blends carried by Gilligallou Bird are based on the study of birds, using 100% seed.  No fillers, no weed seed, no grass seed, no wheat seed, non-GMO and pesticide free.  The goal being; bringing back a very high food value to your birds, opening up to a wider variety of species to your backyard, and giving our clients the best value and enjoyment from their seed purchase.

Over seven years later, the Gilligallou Bird Store continues to be built upon these founding philosophies.  Birding is deeply “seeded” in our heart and soul, and every day we thrive to extend our knowledge of birding onto our growing clientele.
