The beautiful and abundant winter birds have arrived at the Ogden Nature Center!

Seven days a week, mid-November through mid-March, the Wasatch Audubon Society volunteers fill six feeding stations along the 1.5 miles of walking trails.  Some of the feeders hanging from the Visitor Center also get filled.  This seed mix is 90% Black Oil Sunflower seeds and 10% millet or regular mixed seed.

This tradition began in 1982 when the Wasatch Audubon Society was founded.  Members including John Nelson, Ev Doman and Jack Rensel initiated the project, designed and built feeding stations, and “deer proofed” the stations over the years. The feeders get quite a bit of wear and tear from raccoons and deer. As a result, Dan Johnston has become pretty skilled at feeder repair.

Thanks to the Audubon efforts, the Nature Center grounds are blessed with a long list of wintertime birds including Dark-eyed Junco, White-crowned Sparrows, American Goldfinch, Black-capped Chickadees, House Sparrows, House Finches, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, and more.  Even hawks and owls have been spotted dining at the feeders.

For the 2023/2024 season, the following volunteers are filling the feeders:

  • Jeane Taylor
  • Jeanette and Brian Nosker
  • Susan Snyder and Doug Murray
  • John Bellmon
  • Maya Pendleton
  • Dan and Laura Johnston (Laura is the feeder project coordinator this year!)
  • Julia Barber and family
  • Barb and Bruce Perry (serve as substitutes when needed)

We hope you’ll join us in thanking these wonderful friends of the Nature Center, and come enjoy the winter birds!
