About Us

In July 2011, Larry and Judy Bergman opened the doors of Bergman’s Power & Backard. We are a leading Grand Rapids dealership for power equipment and service. While Larry and Judy were busy with power end of the business, Judy had a dream of a wild bird retail store that would carry quality products and feed. As they continued to remodeled the building they were able to open up a room for Backyard Birding.

The transition from a shelf with only corn and sunflower seeds to a full wild bird retail store, with its own private blends, has been a great journey.

Judy has a passion for nature and has her Master Naturalist from Michigan State University Extension. She is also a co-author of Spring Wildflower Scavenger Hunt, a field guide to our local spring flowers.
