Project Feeder Watch is a citizen science project out of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Citizen science is a way for the public to contribute to the scientific understanding of the natural world. Participants will learn how to identify and count backyard feeders birds under the Project Feeder Watch protocol. The data collected will help to understand changes in bird populations.
