What is Project FeederWatch?
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 highest
numbers of each species they see at their feeders from
November through early April. FeederWatch helps scientists
track broad scale movements of winter bird populations and
long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance.
Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology in partnership with the National Audubon Society,
Bird Studies Canada, and Canadian Nature Federation.
