Build a Birdhouse! Virtual Workshop

How-to
May 15, 2020

By Kathleen Kennedy

Kathy Kennedy and her husband Brian lead us through our traditional Birdhouse Building workshop. Did you get your birdhouse kit? If not, we still have a few available for purchase from our website.

Follow along … 

You’ve created your own birdhouse - Congratulations!

Hang it on a tree or post and place it in a protected area so predators won’t see it as easily. You’ll notice the hole is small - this is a birdhouse for wrens, chickadees and other small birds. Once they decide to nest in it, they’ll likely return every year, especially if you clean it out at the end of the summer season. You can attract these entertaining birds to your yard by providing food and water for them. Native plants in the garden are always a good choice for food.

Enjoy your birdhouse - and join us again for more fun programs! We also want to thank Brian Kennedy of Fixhampton for making the kits and guiding us along, and Riverhead Building Supply for donating the materials every year for this fun workshop.
