So, in the pursuit of a more perfect Xmas present, I visited our new Dripping Springs version of Wild Birds Unlimited. It’s super-easy for me because it shares a parking lot with our Keller Williams office.
I talked with Manuel and Anna Peña, the owners, and shortly we were joined by their daughter, Amanda, and her daughter.
Anna is a retired pharmacist and she and Manuel are truly nature-lovers, so they are glad they opened this franchise of Wild Birds Unlimited in September. Amanda is their manager.
As you can see, they have really squirrel-proof bird feeders. They have all kinds of seed formulated for the central Texas birdies. They have various sizes of locally-made wind chimes tuned to a pentatonic chord. They have more styles of bird feeders than you even knew existed, including the kind that suction-cups onto window glass; perfect for bird-viewing by your grandma, your toddler, and your pets. They can repair their sturdy squirrel-proof bird feeder, should a gorilla take hold of it. You can also find books, cards, and attractive gift items here.
The Peñas have enjoyed getting to know customers from Driftwood, Buda, Wimberley, Dripping Springs, Johnson City, and Blanco- people who not only enjoy birds, but appreciate conserving the natural world. If this sounds like you, stop by the store on 290, right in the heart of town.
