Join a citizen science program and make a difference! Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers and other locales in North America. Participants periodically count the birds they see at their feeders from November through early April. The data they collect help scientists track winter bird populations. Join us to learn more about the program. Project FeederWatch officially begins November 8.
