We’d like to introduce the Bird House staff, which always does its best to provide excellent, knowledgeable service.
The Bird House, which I founded 18 years ago, has satisfied my love for entrepreneurship in a business which adds to the quality of life in our community. I am pleased to be able to offer our customers an enjoyable shopping experience while enhancing their love of nature. Our continuing focus on superior customer service and a growing selection of bird, garden and gift items is a challenge but a rewarding experience.
Ann Marie’s favorite birds are woodpeckers, nuthatches and titmice. She enjoys hearing customers’ squirrel stories, and waits for the time when she will learn of squirrel antics that have never been told before.
Brooke is in her fifth year at the Bird House. Brooke enjoys learning about bird products, working with coworkers, and interacting with customers. She lives with her husband and has a daughter living in the area. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, nature and taking walks with her Yorkshire Terrier, Yogi.
Carl is in his second year at the Bird House. He is a photographer and enjoys spending time outdoors.
Carol is a long-term employee of the Bird House, and an avid gardener and backyard birder. Carol is one of our ‘Sunday Redheads’.
Carole was director of an Environmental Education Resource Center for over 15 years. For the past seven years, Carole enjoys imparting her knowledge to help bird enthusiasts. Carole sings in the Rochester Oratorio Society and recently returned from an exhilarating trip to China. She enjoys birding, gardening, kayaking and spending time with her family.
Jane has been with the Bird House for five years. She knew it was the perfect place for her because her life’s passion is feeding, watching, and learning to photograph BIRDS! She currently lives with her cat, Stormy.
Liz is in her fifth year at the Bird House. She has a degree in Wildlife Conservation and has worked at various nature centers as a naturalist and environmental educator. When away from the Bird House Liz enjoys crafting, hiking, birding, muay thai and loud music!

Rich lives in Bushnell’s Basin with his wife Janet (a busy mother, librarian, and part-time potter), his two teenage sons Brian and Jonathan, and their two cats, Scout and Scamp. They are avid gardeners and wildlife enthusiasts who love to hike, bike, dig, rake—just enjoy the outdoors in all four seasons. Rochester is a great place to be!
Trish has been a birdhouse employee for more than 5 years. A teacher’s assistant, Trish also volunteers her time at Tinker Nature Park. As an avid backyard birder, Trish is great at answering any of your birding questions!
