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 three weights and is dyed using immersion and handpainting techniques. For each skein purchased, $2 goes towards Birds Canada research and conservation work.
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 BSC2019, 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!
