At Nature Center Class You Can Learn How to Attract Birds

Jamestown, NY – Have you ever wondered why your neighbors have so many birds and you don’t?

At the Audubon Nature Center on Saturday morning, October 17, you can learn the secrets of attracting birds, how to make your own soft suet that the birds cannot resist, and how to keep a variety of birds in your yard.

Just like people, birds need food, water, and shelter. They are fairly fussy and looking for a variety of things in any yard: not all food or shelter is created equal.

The 10 a.m. to noon class will go into the basics of feeding, identifying, and attracting birds.

You will learn some fantastic recipes for homemade feeds that the birds just adore. You will also learn a variety of ways to create shelter for and photo opportunities of birds out the window.

Instructor Jeff Tome is a senior naturalist at the Nature Center. He has been watching birds at birdfeeders most of his life and had to be very creative to attract birds to his current yard.

Fee is $19 or $15 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15. 

Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, October 13: Call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or use the online form by clicking on “Attracting Birds” at www.jamestownaudubon.org.
