Two FeederWatch Cams Now Online
As we near the beginning of the 2013 Project FeederWatch season, we’re excited to announce the re-launch of last year’s successful FeederWatch Cam in Manitouwadge, Ontario (watch now) alongside a brand new cam focused on the feeder birds here in Sapsucker Woods (view now). Both cams give you up-close and personal views of a diversity of birds. The Ontario cam features many winter finches that are difficult to see elsewhere like Pine Grosbeaks, Common and Hoary Redpolls, and Evening Grosbeaks, while the Sapsucker Woods cam includes birds of the Eastern deciduous forest like titmice, goldfinches, and woodpeckers (not to mention the ducks and geese cruising through the background on the pond). You can explore the most common species at each cam site by clicking on the “Species Info” tab beneath the livestream.
There’s still time to sign up for Project FeederWatch as well! Check out their new website with all the details about how you can play an important role in helping scientists learn about the habits of winter birds. We welcome people of all interests and skill levels. A $15 fee ($12 for Lab members) covers staff time and project kits. Join today and receive your kit before the new season begins! Educators can also use Project FeederWatch to do bird counts and teach science concepts. Our Investigator’s Kit for Homeschoolers offers everything you need and is on sale now for 30 percent off.
