Helping kids make free pine cone birdfeeders

Bring the kids to Wild Birds Unlimited this Saturday, Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to make a pine cone feeder that birds go nuts over. The project is quick and easy. First, the kids smear Bark Butter (it's like peanut butter, only better for the birds) on each layer of the pine cone. Then they sprinkle it with shelled sunflower chips. Tie a string to the top and there you have it! A tasty treat for the birds. We'll even wrap it so children can give it as a gift. 

I'll be on hand to help with this event at the Wild Birds Unlimited store, 24451 Alicia Parkway, Mission Viejo.  For more information, call (949) 472-4928.

Happy Birding!
