As it gets colder, wild birds can struggle to find the food they need, especially the backyard birds that stick around all year.

For the last 17 years, the MK Nature Center has been helping people in the Treasure Valley feed the birds with it’s annual bird seed sale, and this year’s sale is set for Friday and Saturday, Dec. 1 and 2, and will include live bird presentations and kids crafts.

Vicky Runnoe, Conservation Education Supervisor withIdaho Fish and Game and Superintendent of the Morrison Knudsen Nature Center, joined Idaho Matters to talk more.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
