Bakyard Birds, Winter Birding Workshop at Mud Creek, Jan 13
The winter months are a great time for backyard birding. Come to Mud Creek ELC and create your own bird feeder from recycled materials. By putting up a feeder in your yard you can experience the wonderful birds of winter right outside your window and stay warm inside while watching. Feeding birds in winter is fun and helps birds during the harsh conditions the season brings.
Learn about common backyard birds, feeding tips, and ways to attract birds to your property. There will also be a stroll along the trail in search of birds.
