Default Project Feederwatch

It is that time of year again, when the birds start flocking to your feeders and it is time to sign up again for Project Feederwatch. I am betting that many of you already take part in this, but for those who don't know about it, let me recruit them.

Project Feederwatch is a program through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology that uses people across the US to identify and count the birds at their bird feeders during the winter months. These data are collected, tabulated and analysed to track the rise and fall of various species in different areas, and often the first indication scientists have that a bird species is in trouble is when the counts at Project Feederwatch show it is present in much lower numbers than in prior years. It is easy to participate - the website has lots of info on identifying the common bird species, and data can be entered online. It costs $15 to sign up, to help them defray the costs of the program.

How about a show of hands. How many of you already participate in this, and/or other CLO projects such as the Christmas Bird Count or the Great Backyard Birdcount? I've been doing all of them for about five years now.
