Project FeederWatch

from your own backyard

Become a scientist in your own yard! As easy as counting birds as often as every week or as infrquently as you like. If you have a bird feeder, bird bath, or plantings that attract birds, you're all set. Project FeederWatch is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Bird Studies Canada. It's a fun way to learn and contribute to

a 30+ year-and-running dataset of bird population changes. Visit feederwatch.org to learn more.

Upcoming Tours

Stay tuned… We're planning a winter trip to the Merced National Wildlife Refuge. Details coming soon.
