ABOVE: Volunteer Charlie Wilson fills a feeder with a suet cake Thursday at the Conservation Nature Center in Cape Girardeau. Wilson and fellow volunteer Joan Anderson were setting up January's display of backyard birds. The display will let visitors know what type of food birds like to eat. Wilson and Anderson change the display each month, usually to coordinate with an upcoming event.
