Birdhouse Workshop, March 11

Birds are actively investigating nest sites now and if you want to learn how to get birds to nest in your garden this year, come to our birdhouse workshop this Sunday, March 11

When?  3-5pm

Location: Our backyard

What to bring:  Dress for the weather, camera, note taking stuff

What we'll do:  Go over different types of nest boxes and nesting platforms, talk about which bird species you can attract, explain how to install and maintain your nest boxes. We'll cover pests and how to avoid them, and handle examples of different species' nests and nesting materials

Reserve a spot!: Cost is only $15 but space is limited.  Please RSVP to Marilyn at 544-7189 or email us at

We hope to see you then!


  1. I wish I was in the area and could attend, it sounds like a lot of fun. What kind of bird is that in the picture at the top of the entry? I don't know my birds super well, but it looks somewhat similar to the flickertails we get here in Eastern North Dakota.

  2. Thanks for the comments- sorry you can't attend, but I realize it is a long drive for a 2 hour workshop!
    Yes, that is a northern flicker very similar to the ones in eastern ND.
