Citizen Science: Project FeederWatch -- Count #14 Report 2020-2021 Season w/Original Photos


Citizen science is a great way to involve children and adults in discovery and contribute to scientific research and conservation. Project FeederWatch through Cornell University is a great way to get involved in citizen science. You can learn more at the Project FeederWatch website.

I typically watch birds on Saturday and Sunday. This is my report for 13-14 February 2021.
