Enjoy the last weeks to identify and count birds in your yard as a part of Project FeederWatch. (1 Yellow-rumped Warbler!)
This year’s FeederWatch season continues through Friday April 5, which is just around the corner. Your information is valuable to help you keep track of what’s happening in your own backyard, and to help biologists track long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. By participating in Project FeederWatch, your observations become part of something more than personal. Add a little more data during the last few weeks of this winter’s Project FeederWatch – and submit your species counts to the FeederWatch website.
Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Bird Studies Canada, and as thousands of FeederWatch birders in communities across North America count birds and send their tallies to the Project FeederWatch database, the result is a treasure of numbers – information that FeederWatch scientists analyze to compose a description of winter bird abundance and distribution. This information is used to measure changes in the winter ranges and abundances of bird species over time – week by week, and year by year.
There are just a few weeks left to participate, so plan ahead for your Project FeederWatch counts. For more information, please refer to https://feederwatch.org/
