  Songbird, started by two lifelong wildlife conservation professionals in 2013, 

helps people enjoy birding in their own backyard.

Island Orchids opened in 1989 and features the largest selection of 

colorful, flowering orchids in Southern Colorado. 

The businesses merged in 2017 to create a unique shop in Old Colorado City, 

Colorado Springs’ historic West-side.
