The next season for the Project FeederWatch Citizen Science program begins in just one week! Share your observations about the birds coming to your feeders between November and April, and help reveal important patterns in bird numbers and distribution over time. The FeederWatch website has a fresh look for the program’s 27th season as a North America-wide initiative, and offers new web tools to make participation and exploration even easier and more fun.
Check out the interactive Common Feeder Birds online tool to explore food and feeder preferences for nearly 100 species of common feeder birds! This exciting new resource is cross-referenced and searchable by region, bird species, food type, and feeder type.
We also recommend a visit to the Ontario FeederWatch Cam to enjoy a live view of activity at the feeders of Bird Studies Canada members Tammie and Ben Haché in Manitouwadge, ON. If you aren’t lucky enough to have Evening Grosbeaks in your neighbourhood this weekend, try catching a glimpse of them online at the Hachés’ feeders!
