Project FeederWatch 2020/2021
Welcome to the Jayhawk Audubon Society’s Project FeederWatch page! Throughout the winter we will be providing encouragement and resources to help our members become successful citizen scientists. We'll provide tips on identifying our local birds, attracting more birds to your yard, and collecting your data so it can be used for scientific research.
Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Birds Canada. People like you who love feeding and watching birds contribute to science-based knowledge about bird distribution and abundance throughout the U.S. and Canada. You don’t need to be an expert birder to participate. Birders of all skill levels are encouraged to participate – it’s a great project for classrooms, youth groups, and retirement communities.
The Project FeederWatch season runs from November 14, 2020 through April 9, 2021. You can join at any time! Counts are conducted for two consecutive days every week but it’s fine to miss weeks – there’s no minimum number of counts required.
If you’re ready to learn more about participating, click here for the Project FeederWatch website. For an $18 participation fee you will receive a Research Kit with instructions for participating, as well as a bird identification poster and calendar. Join now so your materials will arrive in time for the start of the season!
