NatureWatchers-Citizen Science

Old Binoculars

Got birds on your mind? 

Project FeederWatch gives you an opportunity to be a home-based Nature Watcher.  Report the birds visiting your feeders during the winter to early spring (from November to April).  FeederWatch data help scientists track movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance.  

The eBird registry is one of the largest biodiversity data repositories in the world.  Both recreational and professional bird watchers contribute to this site, providing extensive records across North America and internationally.

NestWatch is a nationwide monitoring program designed to track status and trends in the reproductive biology of birds, including when nesting occurs, number of eggs laid, how many eggs hatch, and how many hatchlings survive. Our database is intended to be used to study the current condition of breeding bird populations and how they may be changing over time as a result of climate change, habitat degradation and loss, expansion of urban areas, and the introduction of non-native plants and animals.

Join an annual tradition with Audubon Christmas Bird Count from December 14th to January 5th. Counts take place within "Count Circles," which focus on specific geographical areas and always include at least one experienced birder.
