With the cold months here, many birds have either been migrating south, or bulking up for the long winter ahead. Lets help by providing them with a good meal! Using natural materials, we will make bird feeders to hang in your yard to give the migrating birds, as well as the year-long residents an extra boost! Family Program. Please call for Reservations: (631) 265-1054.
