All of the birdseed birdfeeders on the campus are being removed in an effort to reduce the attraction of the bird feed to various rodents, including rats.
Birdfeeders are being stored at the back of the Hospital chapel for your retrieval – close to the Shipping and Delivery entrance. This area can be accessed through the parking lot located between Primrose Gardens and Menno Home on Brundige Avenue.
If you live in the Apartments, your birdfeeder will be returned to you directly.
Birdfeeders have been a challenge over the years at Menno Place as they may attract rats and rodents, especially in the cooler winter months.
A team will be set up to explore the options for next year and a wild bird expert will be consulted. We hope that we can find a solution to this problem that will allow our residents to enjoy the pleasure of bird watching once again.
Hummingbird feeders will not be removed.
