Getting chilly out there, isn't it?

We know it can be hard to get outdoors when
the weather starts to change, but we've got you covered when it comes to motivation – head to The West Woods for the magical experience of having wild birds trust you enough to eat from your hand!

Our Bird in the Hand Feeding Station is a prime spot to interface with Nature, and it's so easy to do!

Just pick up a packet of bird seed at the front desk of The West Woods Nature Center and follow the signs to the feeder, about 1/10 mile. Feeding instructions are posted at the site.

Black-capped Chickadees are our most
common visitors, but who knows, maybe you'll get a Red-breasted Nuthatch. It's been a pleasure hearing and seeing them recently at
the nature center's feeders.

Enjoy –
and to our feathered friends, bon appetit!


Ten out of 10 doctors recommend Outsidea
as a means to experience physical and emotional
health benefits.
