Drawing up on the knowledge of 14,000 people participating in Project Feeder Watch, this presentation will help you understand the biology and survival strategies of our favorite birds of winter. Learn how to attract colorful birds to your yard and discover the food and feeder preferences of New York's Top 20 most common feeder birds. Finally, learn how you can contribute to science by watching the birds in your own backyard.
Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. FeederWatchers periodically count the highest numbers of each species they see at their feeders from November through early April. FeederWatch helps scientists track broadscale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance.
Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in partnership with the National Audubon Society, Bird Studies Canada, and Canadian Nature Federation.
