Project Feeder Watch
Project Feeder Watch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders in an
effort to document broad-scale movement by wintering birds. Every so often
feeder-watchers survey birds they have attracted by setting out food, water
or plantings. Anyone is welcome to participate. For more information, visit
the project's web page here: feederwatch.org
Tricky Bird ID
Project Feeder Watch has just launched a helpful guide on how to better
distinguish between a few of the more tricky birds, beginning with
Cooper's vs. Sharp-shinned Hawks, and Cassin's, Purple, and House
Finches. Tricky Bird ID Page
Crissal Thrasher, Bendire's Thrasher, Bell's Vireo
Abert's Towhee, Virginia's Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo
Notations of time, place (as detailed as possible) and numbers are very important.
Records of gender, age, behavior, habitat, etc. would be helpful. His contact information
follows, as well. Thank you.
