Join us Saturday, December 8 at Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre from 10am until noon to learn about birds that could visit your feeder this winter and make a cedar bird feeder to take home (or give as a gift!). You must register to attend this event. There is a $30 fee associated with building the bird feeder. You can choose between two styles.
Hopper Style Feeder: Includes walls and a roof to protect the seeds from the weather. This means you don't have to fill the feeder as often. This size feeder will attract most smaller birds while preventing larger species, like grackles, from monopolizing the feeder.
Table Style Feeder: A protected area where seeds can be spread and kept dry. Doesn't hold alot of seed so they need to be filled more often. Platform will drain to prevent water accumulation. These attract most species of birds, including ground feeding birds like juncos.
