CAPE MAY -- The Nature Center of Cape May will hold bird seed sales the first weekend of the month through December. The dates are Oct. 6-7, Nov. 3-4 and Dec. 1-2.
This year there will be no pre-orders; shoppers can just choose from among a variety of Aspen Song wild bird seed mixes and New Jersey Audubon’s SAVE black-oil sunflower seed, which is grown locally and helps fund the mission of NJ Audubon.
Other types of seed for sale include woodpecker mix and Nyjer seed, which attracts goldfinch, redpoll and pine siskin.
NJ Audubon suggests spreading some mixed seed on the ground, because not all birds feed from hanging feeders. Spreading cracked corn on the ground attracts wild turkeys, and suet cakes attract many species of birds, particularly woodpeckers and Carolina wrens. Suet can be put in a cage to discourage squirrels.
A variety of feeders and accessories will also be for sale.
NJA members receive a 20 percent discount on bird seed. Proceeds benefit educational programs at the Nature Center.
Bird Seed Sale Days will take place at NJ Audubon Nature Stores, which can be found at the Nature Center of Cape May, 1600 Delaware Ave., Cape May, open 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; and the Cape May Bird Observatory Center for Research and Education, 600 Route 47 North, Cape May Court House, open 9:30-4:30 p.m.; and The Northwood Center, 701 East Lake Drive, Cape May Point, open 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
For information call 898-8848.
