More citizen science

Would you like to participate in a three-year study about birds' eating preferences? Project Wildbird, organized by Wild Bird Feeding Industry Research Foundation, wants more birders in Canada and the United States for the experimental phase of the scientific study of wild birds' feed and feeder preferences.

The experimental phase initially will focus on Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia. The foundation will provide feed, feeders and guidelines.

If you want to participate as an individual or with a school or birding group, you can find details about the experimental phase here. Act now, and help beginning birders become successful at attracting species to their feeders!

Other information--such as details about the feed, feeder, hardware, digital cameras and software contributed to the study--appear here.
