Shipping & Returns/Refunds



Shipping is available , please choose the shipping option at checkout. Shipping is available by Canada Post and will be sent regular mail. 


We do not ship outside of Canada.


We don't as a rule ship seed. Because of the weight of seed your shipping cost would likely exceed the cost of the seed itself. Any orders with seed with shipping will be cancelled and refunded.


Porch Pick up/Store pick up available with online and telephone orders. We can designate a time for pick up if you prefer. Please call us 613-475-9510 to schedule this. Otherwise wait for the email that says that your order is ready. You can come anytime during business hours (Tues-Sat 10a-5p)to in store to pick up.



During lockdowns: Delivery during lockdowns is available within 25km for $10 (due to gas price increases), timing of delivery is at the discretion of the owner of The Birdhouse. Porch pick up is encouraged over delivery as we are a small operation. No deliveries outside of the 25km range will be considered as demands for our time and presence in store increase greatly during lockdowns.
