Adair County Librarian Leeann Jesse and Lindsey Wilson College Bonner student Saundra Winn have restocked the library's supply of Adair County Garden Club's Gourmet Suet Balls. Leeann reported that sales have been steady.

The library has also added a feeding station for the birds filled with our own Adair County Wild Bird Seed Mix. Urban birds especially benefit from well stocked feeders as their choice of seed can be limited.

Birds prefer Adair County Garden Club Gourmet Suet Balls over store-bought suet - they instinctively know what's good for them. ACGC Gourmet Suet Balls are available at the Adair County Library, Birding 101 Classes or from any ACGC member. The one pound suet balls at $3.00 with 100% of the sales benefiting the Adair County Garden Club's birding and gardening projects.

If you'd like to learn more about feeding and identifying the birds attend one of the Adair County Garden Club's Birding 101 classes. Three classes are being offered this year for your convenience. Birding 101 classes will be held at the Adair County Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street (MAP), Columbia, KY:
  • Saturday January 29, 2011, at 10amCT
  • Saturday February 5, 2011, 10amCT
  • Friday February 11, 2011, at 6:30pmCT
For more information on Birding 101 classes - the Great Backyard Bird Count and how you can participate contact Barbara Armitage (270) 250-2979.

Learn, have fun, feed the birds and celebrate our fine feathered friends. - Barbara Armitage
