Data submission for the 2014-15 season ending soon
If you still have data to enter from the 2014-2015 season, this is your last chance. Data entry will remain open to allow you to view your data and to allow you to access your online profile if you need to change your email address.
Research kits shipping soon
We will start shipping kits in the U.S. in a few weeks. Kits for Canadian participants will be sent in October. Early kits are shipped by bulk mail, so delivery times vary from one to four weeks.
New U.S. Project Assistant
|Welcome, Chelsea Benson.
This summer we bid farewell to Susan Newman, who left the Cornell Lab after serving as a FeederWatch project assistant for four years. And we welcomed Chelsea Benson who is assisting both with Project FeederWatch and with NestWatch. Chelsea has a background in environmental education and conservation and has worked with schools, community organizations, and local governments. We are excited to have her on the FeederWatch team!
Chelsea has already put her educational experience to work updating the FeederWatch slideshows. Our Backyard Birdfeeding slideshow is available for download from our website, and a second show about Project FeederWatch will be available soon.
