Join Feederwatch

Information collected at your backyard feeder can help scientists determine how bird populations are changing across the continent — information that is crucial for effective bird conservation programs.

Once every two weeks — from November through March — Project FeederWatch participants count the birds that appear at their feeders and submit the data to Bird Studies Canada, Nature Canada’s Important Bird Areas partner. For a $35 registration fee, “FeederWatchers” receive a poster of common winter birds, a bird calendar, the Birdwatch Canada newsletter (4 times/year), an instruction booklet and data report forms. Data can also be entered over the Internet.
