Ellis Bird Farm Blog
The last week of October was a busy one for Myrna, as she delivered 6 presentations in 5 days. One of her most well-received talks--Fascinating Backyard Birds: A glimpse into the habits and behaviours of our wild neighbours--was delivered at a well-attended public talk in Alix on October 18th. The presentation was hosted by Curt and Donna Peterson and Doug McDermand (Centre), Alix Home Hardware. Other talks were given at an EBF strategic planning meeting and to the Red Deer Garden Club, Parkland Garden Centre, the Wild Bird Store (Calgary) and the Calgary Area Nestbox Monitors group.
