Count Feeder Birds for Science

Help the Cornell Lab of Ornithology learn about the habits of backyard birds by participating in Project FeederWatch. Anyone with an interest in birds and nature can participate in the project. The information you and others report online helps scientists at the Cornell Lab track changes in the numbers and distribution of birds across the continent.

“By watching and keeping track of the birds in your own neighborhood, you really can make a difference,” says project leader David Bonter. “The more people watching, the more we can learn about the birds that brighten the winter landscape.”

More than 50,000 people have participated in FeederWatch, and new participants are welcome to join at any time. The 27th season of Project FeederWatch begins November 9. Join today and receive your kit before the new season begins.
