Help Count Feeder Birds

Project FeederWatch is a winter long survey of birds that visit feeders throughout North America.

Help Count Feeder Birds
Like birds?

You might want to consider becoming a citizen scientist this winter for Project FeederWatch, a winter long survey of birds that visit feeders throughout North America. 

The data helps scientists track movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends—where birds are and are not. Such data, for example, can help scientists determine when a bird population is at risk.

It cost $15 to participate but you will be sent a research kit with instructions for participating. You provide the feeder and seed. Anyone interested in birds can participate.

The Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center in Northampton County is looking for volunteers to help with a count in February and March. A training day will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Feb. 1.  Contact Rick Wiltraut at rwiltraut@pa.gov or 610-746-2801, Ext 103.
