Project FeederWatch

November 2020 – April 2021

Join the winter's long survey of birds that visit backyards, nature centers, and community areas in North America. Count birds as often as every week or as infrequently as you like; the schedule is completely flexible. Make your counts a part of something bigger! Project FeederWatch is supported almost entirely by its participants. The annual participation fee is $18 for U.S. residents ($15 for Cornell Lab members). Visit feederwatch.org.
