Where to buy it


Get to know some of the more common birds that live in your backyard: • Brown Creeper: these little birds are a bit tricky to see. They climb up tree trunks, where their brown feathers blend in with the colour of the bark. • Bohemian Waxwing: In winter, watch for large flocks of these birds hopping around in the trees, eating berries. • Merlin: Don’t be fooled by its small size. The Merlin is a fierce predator that attacks smaller birds as they are flying and snatches them from the air.
