Project Feederwatch Birds

This Project Feederwatch Birds post features birds who visited our feeders from November 2016 through January 2017. Participants, myself included, send their counts from November through April,  to Project FeederWatch in order to help scientists track movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. These bird trends are models of how nature works and are sensitive environmental indicators of how the earth is doing. We need to pay close attention. I count birds during two consecutive days each week and attempt to photograph each of the species. Here are some of the visitors to our yard so far.

    Absolutely delightful post, cj. It shows the importance of keeping a feeder up, and oh so many species you captured! And there is nothing so satisfying as being this close to a pileated woodpecker.
