Once again, we want to thank all of you for continuing to support us and your backyard birds. We remain open 10:00 to 5:00 daily (not our usual 6pm). We continue to recommend online ordering (https://www.freeportwildbirdsupply.com/shop) for both direct shipping and for curbside pickup (select “in-store pickup” when you get to the shipping screen). Or, call us for free delivery to local towns (see https://www.freeportwildbirdsupply.com/post/4-15-covid-19-pandemic-update for more specifics).
That being said, after a trial run, our door is now unlocked once again for walk-in traffic if you want to take a look at some items, or if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for. We know it’s hard to picture your new feeding station or select a hummingbird feeder for a Mother’s Day gift without seeing it up close and personal. However, we ask that you please wear a face mask, use the hand sanitizer supplied at the door, follow the arrows taped to the floor, and keep an appropriate distance from others. It seems like a lot, but we are doing our best to keep you, us, and our employees safe.
Normally, we would be starting to ramp up our tour season in May. But, for obvious reasons, there are changes this year. All of our tours and workshops for May have been cancelled. These include: Birds on Tap – Roadtrip! “Warblers and Wort” and Migratory Songbird Workshop with DownEast Adventures (BUT, stay tuned for a Fall Songbird Workshop offering!). The Rangeley Birding Festival in June has also been cancelled.
Our June tours (i.e. Bicknell’s Thrushes of Maine trip) are currently still being offered, but are subject to change as the Covid situation evolves.
All Saturday morning birdwalks remain cancelled through at least May 30.
New Products added to Estore
We are constantly updating our offerings on our Estore. Check it out for hummingbird feeders, puzzles, and oriole feeders. Our newest addition is the CAREFUL KEY (https://www.freeportwildbirdsupply.com/product-page/covid-key), locally made by Zootility Tools. This handy little item allows you to open doors, press buttons, and use a stylus without having to touch anything!
