Once again, Project FeederWatch season has begun! Bird Studies Canada has volunteers across the country, who count feeder bird numbers & species for science. Happy to say that we can be included in that group; we have been counting feeder birds for several years now. In other areas of N.A., The Cornell Lab receives the information from feederwatchers.
Why, you say, do people count birds? Birds Matter.....Scientists will learn about the winter bird populations in various locations around North America, keeping track of numbers & movements over several years. If you have feeders, a bird bath or plants that attract birds, you can participate!! It's fun and educational for the whole family...and helps to pass the winter months!
