In 2010 the TBG held its first bird house building competition called “For the Birds”. Both professional design firms and the general public were invited to design and construct species specific nesting boxes for one of 6 types of birds. An expert panel of professionals was consulted on the selection of bird species and the specific nesting requirements of each. Each entry was imaginative and unique. All of the birdhouse were on display for the summer allowing visitors to the garden to view and judge the entries. The winning birdhouses of the competition were announced at a Flocktail reception that honoured all the participants. The top five birdhouses were then carefully and strategically installed into the exiting gardens. The exciting competition was repeated in 2010 and the winning entries are to soon be installed in the new woodland walk and bird habitat garden.
