PROJECT FEEDER WATCH: 2018 - 2019  Saturday, November 10 to Friday, April 5

 

The project always starts on the second Saturday of November and runs for 21 weeks. The FeederWatch season runs from Saturday, November 10 to Friday, April 5.  New participants will be able to log into online data entry and set up their count site on November 1. The last day to start a two-day count is Thursday, April 4.

Project FeederWatch turns your love of feeding birds into scientific discoveries. FeederWatch is a winter-long (November-April) survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. Participants periodically count the birds they see at their feeders and send their counts to Project FeederWatch. Your bird counts help you keep track of what is happening in your own backyard and help scientists track long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. With FeederWatch, your observations become part of something bigger. Anyone interested in birds can participate. FeederWatch is conducted by people of all skill levels and backgrounds, including children, families, individuals, classrooms, retired persons, youth groups, nature centers, and bird clubs. You can count birds as often as every week, or as infrequently as you like: the schedule is completely flexible. All you need is a bird feeder, bird bath, or plantings that attract birds.

New participants are sent a Research Kit with complete instructions for participating, as well as a bird identification poster, calendar, and more. You provide the feeder(s) and seed. Then each fall participants receive our 16-page, year-end report, Winter Bird Highlights. Participants also receive access to the digital version of Living Bird, the Cornell Lab’s award-winning, quarterly magazine.

Project FeederWatch is supported almost entirely by its participants. The annual participation fee is $18 for U.S. residents ($15 for Cornell Lab members).  Canadians can participate by joining Bird Studies Canada for CAN$35.  The participation fee covers materials, staff support, web design, data analysis, and the year-end report (Winter Bird Highlights).  Without the support of our participants, this project wouldn’t be possible.

PROJECT FEEDER WATCH: 2017-2018

The 2017–2018 FeederWatch season runs from Saturday, November 11 to Friday, April 13. Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. FeederWatchers periodically count the birds they see at their feeders from November through early April and send their counts to Project FeederWatch. FeederWatch data help scientists track broad scale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. Anyone interested in birds can participate.

FeederWatch is conducted by people of all skill levels and backgrounds, including children, families, individuals, classrooms, retired persons, youth groups, nature centers, and bird clubs. You can count birds as often as every week, or as infrequently as you like: the schedule is completely flexible. All you need is a bird feeder, bird bath, or plantings that attract birds.  New participants are sent a Research Kit with complete instructions for participating, as well as a bird identification poster and more.  You provide the feeder(s) and seed.  Then each fall participants receive our 16-page, year-end report, Winter Bird Highlights.

Project FeederWatch is supported almost entirely by participation fees.  Without the support of our participants, this project wouldn’t be possible.

Join today! Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Bird Studies Canada. Check out the web page for more information and how to start http://feederwatch.org/. Data is especially scarce for Southeast Alaska, so please consider adding to our knowledge about our winter bird populations.
