Winter is a great time of year to spot birds around Huron County! Whether you are out on the local trails or watching your backyard bird feeders, there is still plenty of bird activity to enjoy despite the colder temperatures. So bundle up and join our Bird Bingo to see how many local birds you can find for a chance to win a birding prize pack. The Huron County Library is pleased to partner with Ontario’s West Coast and Nature’s Nest to help you attract more birds to your backyard. The prize pack includes a squirrel buster feeder, 10 pounds of seed, Feed the Birds book, suet and suet feeder, and more!
To win, complete a row or column on the Bingo sheet and return to your local Huron County Library branch by March 4, 2022 to be entered into a draw. Sheets can be printed at home (see link below) or picked up from your local branch. This activity is open to all ages! And if you manage to capture some photos of some of the birds you find along the way, feel free to share on social media and tag us @HuronCountyLibrary Happy birding!
