Project FeederWatch & the BirdSpotter Photo Contest

What is Project FeederWatch?
Project FeederWatch turns your love of feeding birds into scientific discoveries. FeederWatch is a winter-long (November-April) survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. Participants periodically count the birds they see at their feeders and send their counts to Project FeederWatch. Your bird counts help you keep track of what is happening in your own backyard and help scientists track long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance.

What is the BirdSpotter Photo Contest? Here’s how it works:

  1. Every other Monday will have a BirdSpotter photo challenge, telling you what kind of photo Cornell wants to see.
  2. Upload your best photo and start voting! Each contest category runs from Monday through midnight the following Thursday.
  3. There will be two photo winners every other week: one photo that received the most votes and one “Judges’ Choice.” Winners are announced every other Friday and will be entered to win the Grand Prize! 

*You could win a $100 Wild Birds Unlimited gift card or other fun prizes from the Cornell Lab!
