FATHER'S DAY, this Sunday June 17

FATHER’S DAY

Just a reminder that this Sunday June 17 is Father’s Day and if you need some great ideas as to what to get for your great dad, here are a few suggestions:

- bird feeder, a west coast cedar bird feeder for attracting all the birds in dads backyard, or how about a nyjer bird feeder to attract the beautiful bright yellow American Goldfinch. A new hummingbird feeder that does not leak or attract bees and ants might be good for dad.

- a hammock to help dad relax.

- binoculars, a new lightweight and clear set, instead of that heavy old set.

- how about something for his garden, like a birdbath.

- something practical, such as a big bag of his favorite birdseed.

- if you are undecided there is always a gift certificate so he can choose the right gift.

Many other great gift ideas for dad and we are open Sundays noon to 4:30.
Happy Father’s Day!

BIRD WATCHING ON SHAW

There was a small group of birders who were out for the walk and are now t.v stars. The segment is to air this Thursday June 14 on The Daily, which runs hourly after 6:00 pm. If you get a chance to see it please let us know how we did. Good birding.
