Project FeederWatch

November 1 thru to April

"It's Time to Help the Birds You Love!"

"Your observations of birds out your window can really help the conservation of Canada's birds.  Project FeederWatch is a North America wide winter survey of backyard birds.  You don't have to be an expert to participate and you don't even have to go outside.  Observe the birds at a local green space or out your window while you have your morning coffee - warmed by the knowledge that you're contributing to the monitoring of the birds that you spend so much time enjoying."

"The FeederWatch season starts November 1st.  Taking party in Project FeederWatch is really easy.  Participants just need to sign up, count the birds outside, and submit results online or by using the Project FeederWatch mobile app".

Project FeederWatch

Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders across North America. FeederWatchers periodically count the birds they see at their feeders from November through early April and submit their data. This helps scientists track broadscale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance.

Anyone interested in birds can participate - including children, families, individuals, classrooms, retired persons, youth groups, nature centers, and bird clubs. You can count birds as often as every week, or as infrequently as you like: the schedule is completely flexible. All you need is a bird feeder, bird bath, or plantings that attract birds.
