With spring just a few days away it is a perfect time for new birdhouse, why not build one? Friend of Topsy Farms, and backyard birding enthusiast Colette welcomes you to enjoy a bird-brained morning in the Topsy yurt. Colette has two birdhouse designs to choose from in this fun building project; simple enough for any beginner and perfect for younger children and guardians to do together.
One kit (chickadee or wren house) will be provided to every participant, with each child and guardian sharing a kit. Please bring a hammer if possible; there will be some available. Colette will talk about favourite backyard birds; what they’re up to at this time of year, their preferred foods, and how to encourage more birds in your own backyard.
