Join us for the 2018 Project FeederWatch season! Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. FeederWatch is conducted by people of all skill levels and backgrounds, including children, families, individuals, retired people, youth groups, bird clubs and more. Anyone with an interest in birds can participate. Come count birds, drink coffee, eat donuts, share stories and count more birds! Our bird counts help contribute to scientific studies at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
FeederWatchers periodically count the birds they see at their feeders from November 10th, 2018 through April 5th, 2019 and send their counts to Project FeederWatch. Aullwood's Project FeederWatch takes place at the Marie S. Aull Education Center from 9:30–11:30 AM on specific dates. Everyone interested in birds can participate and is invited to join us in Aullwood’s bird watching room for a relaxing morning of counting birds.
FeederWatch data helps scientists track broadscale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. FeederWatch results are regularly published in scientific journals and are shared with ornithologists and bird lovers nationwide. The counts you submit will make sure that your birds (or lack of birds) are represented in papers and in the results found in the Explore section of the FeederWatch website.
