Celebrate World Wildlife Day: Attract & Report Bird Species at-home!

DIY Bird Feeder

World Wildlife Day is Wednesday, March 3, 2021. Get ready for it by creating a DIY bird feeder for your backyard, porch, or balcony!

Attracting birds to your outdoor space can be beneficial for the birds and for you. Observing birds through sight and sound has wonderful calming benefits to our health. Improving our mental and physical well-being is always important, but even more so right now as we approach a year of staying at home.

So gather your household family members to make these fun bird feeders.

Take it to the next step by learning more about the birds that are coming to your feeder and report what you see. Scientists use this data to track migration patterns, leading to management and policy changes as needed.
