Project FeederWatch turns your love of birds into scientific discoveries.
FeederWatch is a winter-long (November-April) survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. Participants periodically count the birds they see at their feeders and send their counts to Project FeederWatch.
Your bird counts help you keep track of what is happening in your own backyard and help scientists track long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. Students at Patricia Bendorf Elementary School are participating this year - counting birds coming to their courtyard feeders.
Red Rock Audubon members - Troy Bingham and Jim Switalla are providing support to the school's FeederWatch program. Clark County Wetlands Park has an ongoing FeederWatch Program. A schedule is attached. Interested in participating - contact the Wetlands Park or come by. A calendar is attached.
