This is a great time of year for the whole family to watch for birds in your backyard or neighborhood park. One way to attract and watch birds inside in winter is to put up a bird feeder at your house. Or bundle up and venture outdoors looking for all the birds that spend the winter here in our area.

Starting Monday, Dec 13, stop by Cedar Mill & Bethany Libraries to pick up a DIY Birdfeeder Kit (while supplies last).
