GBBC news from the Adair Co. Garden Club

How many bird watches does it take to make a bird feeder? Just one - but it's a whole lot more fun with 15. When the Adair County Garden Club announced that we would be making hanging bird feeders at the January class everyone wanted to be there.


An enthustic group of people couldn't be held back to making just one feeder they wanted to include everyone. Several of the feeders are being donated to the community. Melody and Rich Boward have donated one to the Friends of Green River, the Loy family donated one to the employes at Adantis-TENCO, ColumbiaMagazine.com donated several, including the Adair County Columbia Chamber of Commerce, Head Start, the Columbia Class D Facility, and one to the Hardscratch Country Store. The ACGC is also donating feeders to both the WAVE radio (WHVE) and to WAIN radio.

Platform feeders are the preferred feeder style for larger birds like Cardinals and Blue Jays. Especially when they are filled with our ACGC's Adair County Wild Bird Seed Mix, sold exclusively at Day and Day Feed and Pet.

The feeders are also available at the Birding 101 classes for $10. Proceeds benefit the Adair County Garden Club's birding and gardening projects.

Attracting colorful birds to your yard can be a delightful and rewarding experience.

If you'd like to learn more about feeding and identifying the birds attend one of the ACGC's Birding 101 classes. Two more classes are being offered this year for your convenience. Birding 101 classes will be held at the Adair County Extension Office, 409 Fairground ST, Columbia, KY.
  • Saturday, February 5, 2011, at 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 or to purchase a platform feeder contact Barbara Armitage 270) 250-2979.

These free classes are brought to our community by the Adair County Garden Club.

Have fun and learn. -Barbara Armitage
