Eugene is a great place to live. Our temperate climate allows all kinds of wildlife to flourish in our backyards year round!

If you choose to offer seed and suet over winter, may we suggest Black-oil Sunflower Seeds? They are healthy and fatty and perfect for lots of our local birds.

Want a fun activity for the family? How about decorating your backyard for the birds? You can easily decorate your backyard with healthy and bird-safe garlands made from popcorn, cranberries and raisins. Dry pinecones slathered in peanut butter and rolled in birdseed can be hung like ornaments from shrubs and trees, as can slices of apple.

 

Merry Christmas!
