Hello All,

Bird lovers of all ages are invited to Open Day at the Birds Australia
Discovery Centre in the Newington Armory, Sydney Olympic Park this Sunday,
July 10th.

Come along and enjoy a *bird art workshop* hosted by Newington Armory artist
in residence, Alexis Apfelbaum. Adults will learn to make bird art-cards and
bookmarks using collage and simple print making techniques in this two hour
workshop, taking inspiration from the parks birdlife. The workshop runs from
10.30am – 12.30pm.

While the adults are busy making cards and bookmarks, children can enjoy
face painting and balloon twisting from 11am – 1pm.

In the afternoon all ages can participate in a free *bird call competition*,
and be in the running to win exciting prizes. There will be three rounds:
children, beginner adults, and experts. First prize is an iPod Nano loaded
with Fred Van Gessel’s ‘Bird Calls of the Greater Sydney Region’.

To book a place at the Bird Art workshop or register for the bird call
competition, please contact the Birds Australia Discovery Centre:
