About

We’ve been helping families enjoy nature together since 1995 — how can we help yours?

From our humble beginning as a small shop with bird products, Songbird Station has evolved into the premier destination in Mid-MO for products related to bird care, backyard nature and complementary home and yard décor. In 2011 we were awarded the Small Business of the Year Award by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce.

We’re fortunate to have earned a loyal customer base in Columbia and surrounding communities, many of whom enjoy our free seminars and a customer rewards program. We believe in supporting our community and are active in the Audubon Society, Feeders for Teachers, and we support many of the local charities.

You’ll appreciate the personal attention and expertise from our locally owned family business:

  • Owners: Mel, Bev, Grant & Becky Toellner
  • Store General Manager: Kevin Alferman
  • Store Manager: Tristan Palmgren
  • Store Sales Associate: Mary Douglas
