Who Are We? Meet your Santa Rosa Team!


Foster - Part Time Store Dog - a/k/a CEO (Canine Executive Officer)

Certified Dog Biscuit Eating Specialist Since 2022

Foster is a 4-year-old yellow lab and a very good boy. He enjoys spending his days going on long walks and saying hello to the birds and people of Santa Rosa. One of Foster’s many skills is helping our customers in their shopping experience by keeping them company as they walk around the store.

Certified Bird Feeding Specialist Since 2006

Definitely an older, much thinner me, but I'm still as passionate about bird feeding and the hobby as I was when we bought the Fort Collins, CO store over 17 years ago.  We are in Santa Rosa from time to time and look forward to meeting you!

 Kai Connick, General Manager

Certified Bird Feeding Specialist Since 2022

Kai Connick

 Kai is a lifelong California native who lived in southern California before moving to the Santa Rosa area in 2017. He has been the store manager for Wild Birds Unlimited in Santa Rosa since it was acquired by Lauren DeRosa and Lynn Raymond in September of 2022. He’s a dedicated animal lover who was previously employed in the pet industry – but working at Wild Birds Unlimited is the best job he’s ever had! His favorite bird is the chickadee. When he’s not in the store, he fills his free time with reading, video games, singing and playing music, his motorcycle, obsessing about his bird feeding setup (of course), and providing a lap for the three cats who graciously allow him to live in their home.














Adam Mumm, Assistant Manager

Certified Bird Feeding Specialist Since 2022

Adam is a California native, and has been a Santa Rosa local for over 20 years. He’s been feeding birds ever since he was a child, learning the hobby from his grandmother, and his favorite backyard bird is the Cedar Waxwing! Most of his career he has been involved in animal education, and he likes to put up a new Bird Fact every day he is in the store. In addition to his love of our local birds, Adam is also a passionate fan of reptiles, fish, and all sorts of other exotic creepy crawlies!
