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.

Each year over 20,000 cranes and 60,000

arctic-nesting geese make the Refuge home for six months, mingling with thousands of other visiting waterfowl, waterbirds, ibis and shorebirds. Rain does not cancel. Fee: $80 includes transportation. Call the store to reserve your spot. 408-358-9453
