Nesting Material Sculptures at West Point Grey
The birds in Vancouver are making nests right now and we're going to help them out by providing nesting materials for them. Some willow wreaths (recycled from another project) are a great form for adding bits of feathers and wool that the birds can pull out and use for their nests.
We recycled some old wool sweaters that were full of holes and too losely knit to be felted.
Grade 2 students made mini bird buntings to hang in their windows at home.
Pictures from an Audubon bird-a-day calender inspired us with incredible photographs, like this weaver-bird and its nest.
For more information on how to help the birds check out this article by Susan Tweit from the March-April Issue of Audubon Magazine: 10 Things You Can Do for the Birds. Many of her suggestions also apply to helping the bees!
