Providing birds with free, windowless housing is the best way to apologize for centuries of creepily watching them with binoculars. Make up for the public birdbath with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of garden supplies and bird-watching gear at Featherfields The Bird and Garden Store in Hyde Park or on Stanley Street.
Marrying two pastimes that often meander hand-in-hand, Featherfields offers bird lovers and gardeners a veritable playground full of high-end gear that caters to each hobby. The friendly staffers help navigate the extensive selection of garden supplies, which includes decorative items, planting pots and containers, and tools such as the worm-deflecting Mud Gloves gardening gloves ($10.99). Bribe feathered friends for flying advice with a squirrel-proof bird feeder ($26.99) or hummingbird feeder ($23.99). Customers can also direct the pampering instinct inwards with Naked Bee personal-care products, (starting at $3.99), as well as cockle-warming organic teas ($7.99–$13.99) and Nude Bee honey ($8.99–$11.99).
The Rotary Club of London Hyde Park awarded Featherfields the Hyde Park Rotary Business Award. The London Free Press featured the business. Four Goldbookers give the Hyde Park Road location an average of 4.5 stars.
