Get ready—FeederWatch begins tomorrow, November 1! Have you ever wondered how the birds in your yard compare to those in your neighborhood? Project FeederWatch has the answers. If you join FeederWatch and start collecting observations about the birds in your yard, we will show you how your birds compare to those around you. You don’t need a feeder–you just need a bird-friendly space to observe at your convenience. That’s right – no feeders necessary! If you maintain any sort of habitat for birds, FeederWatch is for you.

Join today so you can start counting tomorrow and enjoy the entire season!

“I am a new FeederWatch member and I love it! It’s so easy to enter my data, and all the charts and graphs are just amazing and so interesting. I feel like I am learning so much about my little winged visitors.” –Alida Bockino, Moscow, ID

Rosy-finch bird feeder count project – Volunteer Recruitment

Calling all bird enthusiasts – we need you!!
We are now recruiting volunteers from across the western U.S. for our winter Rosy-finch Bird Feeder survey project. Volunteers for this project spend 20-minutes each month from December through April doing a count of Rosy-finches and other birds at their home bird feeder, or a publicly accessible feeder near them. To participate, you just need to be located within the winter range of the three North American Rosy-finch species: the Gray-crowned, Black, and Brown-capped Rosy-finch (see map below). Even if you haven’t seen rosy-finches at your feeder before, if you’re in the range, we’d love your participation! We will be hosting a live zoom training on November 15th from 7pm-8pm MST, or participants can watch the recording afterward.
