This month we'll be working on knitted baby bird nests used for wildlife rehabilitation. Woolen pouches are soft and excellent for keeping baby birds warm. They also provide a convenient place to feed baby birds. The patterns for the nests are very easy, so if you want to learn to knit, this is a great way to begin. I'll have supplies and would love to get you started on a nest.

I'll be researching VA organizations that may be able to make use of the nests.
