The Joy of Bird Feeding

This will be our first in person meeting since the start of Covid. But no fear, we will also be allowing people to attend virtually if you do not feel comfortable being in person.

In this presentation, Eric Garrison will answer the question, Why feed birds? He will discuss, how to create a bird friendly habitat and how to help keep birds safe.

Eric is a retired educator. For the last 30 years, Eric and his wife Margo have owned the Wild Birds Unlimited Store on Bank Street. Since 2015, Eric has sat on the Board of the Wild Bird Care Centre. If asked, Eric would say that his favourite feeder bird is and remains the Black-capped Chickadee.

If you wish to attend virtually, please email and we will send you the invite the day before or the morning of the event.

See you all on the 15th.


Hybrid Virtual and In-Person



We know that a lot of us miss the in-person meetings, and look forward to getting out and about. We also know that many of you do not yet feel comfortable in meeting in-person. So we will be trying out having both. If you wish to join virtually, you can, and you will see and hear everything going on in the meeting from the comfort of your own home. This will be the first time we have done this, so please bare with us if we have some issues. Comments after the meeting are welcome afterwards to help us improve the experience by emailing
