Holiday Gifts for the Birds: Story, Craft and Ramble in the Woods For Kids

Hosted by the Huntington-Oyster Bay Audubon Society

Winter is fast approaching and soon our feathered friends are going to be seeking extra food. Today we will learn how to give them a little assist! We will start by reading, “First Snow in the Woods” to hear this wonderful story of how our wild neighbors prepare for the changing of the seasons. We will then turn crafty and use pine cones, suet, dried fruits and bird seed to make handmade bird feeders. Once done, we will hang our feeders on a special holiday tree set up in the children’s garden of the library, and then take a winter’s ramble in the woods! This project is for kids of all ages and is easy enough for young children to enjoy.

Please note that most birdseed is processed in plants that also process peanuts if allergies are an issue.

Group size limited to 20. No unregistered siblings please. Call 516 695 0763 to register.

Location: Cold Spring Harbor Library is located at 95 Harbor Road (Route 25-A), CSH, right next door to Cold Spring Harbor State Park. Meet in the third floor story room

I am a big kid at heart, I got my pines, peanut butter and seeds already and will be making these later in Dec. I truly enjoy feeding the birds everyday and watching them. I get a Red Headed Woodpecker which you don't see to often, they love the peanuts that are not shelled as well as the Blue Jays. Whole peanuts, $6.00 for a 5lb bag at Costco. You'll be amazed to watch them open the shells to get the peanuts.
