April-Window Bird Feeder

Good afternoon everyone,

 

I'm pleased to announce that this months Kids Workshop project has gone to the birds! No really....it has!

 

 

This Saturday April 7th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. we will be building a window bird feeder brought to you by Scotts at The Home Depot. In the video below, I talk a little more about it in greater detail.

My fine feathered friend and co-star Larry agrees that all kids will love this great spring project that the whole family will enjoy for years to come.

All children accompanied by their parent/guardian ages 5-12 can join without registration at your local Home Depot. Alongside your project, you'll also be receiving for FREE....

 

  • Kids Workshop kid-sized Home Depot apron
  • commemorative pin
  • certificate of achievement
  • paint to customize your new bird feeder!

 Parents/Guardians, lastly consider clear-coating or using an exterior grade paint or polyurethane after the workshop to ensure your feeder will withstand all the elements throughout the seasons.

And lastly, Larry and I wanted to give you a few simple pointers when it comes to feeding your little yard birds year round well after you've completed building your feeder.

 

Our resident outdoor expert, BostonRoots shares her advice as well as product knowledge in her Feed the Birds! post she wrote last holiday season. With tons of great tips in it, its a post that shouldn't be overlooked.

 

Remember that some birds prefer different feed from others, so always choose the right one to attract the species you want to your feeder.

bird seed

 

  • Thistle aka Nyjer seed is a preferred fave for smaller birds like finches and songbirds.
  • Check out regional blend seeds to attract all sorts of birds 
  • Suet is a great and quick treat to feed birds all year round.

Hopefully with these tips, you'll be enjoying your feeder for a long time.

 

Happy building and bird-watching!
