These two hour, hands-on workshops for adults include everything you need to construct a full-size wooden birdhouse and decorate it in your personal style. The Wildbird Shack pros also give you lots of great information on where, when, and how to hang your birdhouse, so you will attract a wide variety of birds to your backyard. Spend a couple of hours creating something beautiful, and you’ll be rewarded with years of enjoyment as you watch the nesting birds of Illinois. Makes a perfect holiday gift!
