Audubon hosts fall bird seed sale

On Saturday Oct. 3, the Connecticut Audubon Society Center at Fairfield is offering Lyric bird seed at a 20% discount. Pre-orders are due by Sept. 23. It’s the perfect time to start stocking up for winter. To ensure adequate supplies are available, pre-ordering is strongly recommended.

So, what to put on the menu? Most of the birds that stay in Connecticut are seed eaters. Seed and suet provide the calories and nourishment they need to stay warm and healthy as the cold weather approaches and food is becoming scarce. Good choices for food include black oil sunflower seed, safflower seeds (squirrels and grackles don’t like it), Nyjer and suet — a great energy source.

The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Center at Fairfield Nature Store offers a wide selection of bird seed for attracting the greatest variety of birds to your feeder. Knowledgeable staff are always available to offer guidance on seed choice and feeder selection, and to answer general bird-feeding questions.

The Nature Store, located in Fairfield at 2325 Burr Street, is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Pre-order forms for the sale are available at the Nature Store, or on the Center at Fairfield’s website: www.ctaudubon.org/center-at-fairfield.

To learn even more about bird feeding, sign up for one of our Saturday morning Backyard Birding classes, offered Oct. 10, Nov. 14 and Dec. 12. Learn more about these classes at ctaudubon.org/center-at-fairfield, or by calling the Center at Fairfield, 203-259-6305, ext. 109.
