For The Birds

It's amazing that birds, as they prepare for family life, intuitively know how to build a home. And different species build different types of dwellings--except, of course, the cuckoo and the cowbird. Both these species swoop into the nests of others birds when a nest and its eggs are unattended, then lay one or more eggs in the strange "foster" nest where their chicks are hatched and nurtured by the adoptive bird parents. "Cavity nesters," such as bluebirds, chickadees, purple martins, and tree swallows will sometimes choose a human-made birdhouse if it's the right size and in a food-friendly location. This Saturday, we'll make our own bird homes by decorating small wooden birdhouses for our handmade felt birds. We'll also read funny new bird stories together. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. All ages welcome. Free.
