Tweet tweet: backyard bird feeders

I'm so excited to have Colorwheel back in session. Welcome to familiar faces from camp and students new to Colorwheel. This term, all of our activities will be inspired by autumn...this makes me think of brightly colored leaves, apples, pumpkins and the kids' favorite, Halloween!

Here in Portland, we have said goodbye to summer (boo) and the air is feeling cooler. If I were a bird, I would be flying south! Instead, fall is the perfect time to help birds prepare for cold weather. Not all birds migrate to warmer temperatures so providing a full feeder now will help those birds who are scouting for food in anticipation for winter. Feed them through fall and you'll continue to attract birds when winter hits and natural food is less available.

With this in mind, our first session had us crafting bird feeders from recycled milk cartons. Add paint, a popsicle stick roof, a dowel for a perch and a few handfuls of birdseed mix and we had a collection of colorful feeders ready for the new season.

 Happy bird watching!
