BIRD FEEDING 101 -WBU

Date: January 11, 2020

Time: 9:00 AM

Location: Wild Birds Unlimited-  La Plata, MD

Details: Feeding birds in our backyards has become one of the fastest growing outdoor activities for families and individuals. Feeding the birds provides a way to relax from a busy day and reconnect with nature.

But what does it take to feed birds and attract them to our yards? We used to sprinkle seed on the ground and hope they found it. Today we have learned that not all birds will eat from the ground. We have discovered birds chose their food based on the shape of their bill. We have learned that certain birds prefer certain types of feeders.

This FREE workshop will cover the basics to get you started in the hobby of backyard bird feeding or to take your bird feeding to the next level. Come out and join us for this free event. We have a limited number of chairs, so you may want to bring one with you.
