The Backyard Wildbird and Nature Store
6314 Metral Drive,
Nanaimo, B.C. V9T 2L8
In North Nanaimo since May 5th, 1995, The Backyard Wildbird and Nature Store is a locally owned gem tucked away at the north end of Metral Drive. Our friendly, knowledgable staff is ready to help you incorporate nature into your backyard oasis with a selection of Vancouver Island made products. From concrete bird baths to cedar nest boxes and feeders, we strive to put local suppliers first.
All cedar products are made in Nanaimo with designs from the owner. Our cedar bird feeders are easy to clean with ample rain coverage while still allowing you to enjoy the birds. We also carry specific nest boxes for chickadees, nuthatches, wrens, swallows, woodpeckers, and bats. Each nest box is designed for specific species with proper ventilation, the correct size entrance hole, and a predator guard to protect the young nestlings.
For those looking to add a splash of colour to their backyard, our store carries a selection of unique yard-art such as kinetic spinners, decorative flags, solar lights and more. We also carry beneficial insects to help your garden: ladybugs for aphid control, mason bees for pollination, nematodes for crane fly larva and other lawn pests.
Let our knowledgeable staff help you find what you’re looking for: the right seed, feeder, information, a unique nature gift for that someone special or even bird identification.
