Project FeederWatch Starts
Helping birds has never been easier. Project FeederWatch, coordinated by Birds Canada and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, is a welcoming activity for both new-to-birding and experienced birders. You don’t even need a feeder to take part! You’re invited to sign up now and begin counting birds in your neighbourhood when the 36th season of Project FeederWatch starts November 1, 2022.
Last fall and winter, more than 25,000 people across North America watched the birds in their neighbourhoods and turned their observations into scientific discoveries. Black-capped Chickadees topped the list for the most commonly-seen bird across Canada. The Downy Woodpecker and Dark-eyed Junco completed the top three. Thanks so much to all of you who participated!
By taking part in Project FeederWatch, volunteers like you make it possible to track long-term trends in our winter birds. Resources to help you identify the bird species – such as posters, webinars, an app, and online support – are provided. Your observations are used in scientific research, and to increase our understanding of how wildlife is faring and actions needed to protect it.
