For those who enjoy crafts as much as they enjoy birds, bird-themed yarn could be just the thing. At Songbird Yarn and Fibres, you will find playful products in colour combinations inspired by birds from Canada and around the world. The yarn is available in a variety of weights and is dyed using immersion and handpainting techniques. Each bird-inspired skein or product generates a $2 donation to Birds Canada for research and conservation work. Be sure to order by December 10 if you want to receive your order ahead of December 25.

Bird Friendly Window Tape
Collisions with windows in residential and commercial buildings kill more than 25 million birds in Canada each year, and the majority of these collisions occur at houses. Fortunately, options for making windows safer for birds are available! One option is installing the Feather Friendly DIY product on the outside of the window. When you purchase this product and use Coupon Code BirdsCanada, Feather Friendly will make a donation to Birds Canada to support bird conservation. It makes a great gift for a bird-loving homeowner, and it helps birds in more ways than one!
