Bird Club Meeting:
Bird feeders aren't the only way to attract songbirds to your yard.... and not all birds go for bird seed! Generally birds benefit more from their natural food sources, including the fruit & seed-bearing plants they have eaten for centuries.
Douglas-Hart's botanist, Marissa Grant, will share with us a variety of native plants you can add to your yard to support our local birds. She will also supply sources to purchase these plants from. Be sure to bring your plant questions, and you are even encouraged to bring a photo of a local bird on or eating a plant you don't know the name of for a fun challenge.
As always, you will have a chance to share your recent bird sightings and questions! See you there!
The Coles County Bird Club is a group of local people with a shared interest in birds. We meet at the nature center the last Tuesday of each month at 6pm.
