Over 30 Years of Success

Two words describe George Petrides, Sr: Vision and Passion. In 1985, George followed his dream and opened the first Wild Bird Center store in Cabin John, MD, a suburb of Washington, D.C. George’s vision was to serve the wild bird hobbyist with quality products and expert advice in an atmosphere where customers are treated with warmth and respect; a place where everybody knows your name.
