PROJECT FEEDER WATCH

   DUE TO COVID-19, OUR REGULAR FEEDERWATCH IS SUSPENDED BUT WE ARE STILL COLLECTING DATA AT THE LENOIR FEEDERS
Please come and join us for  Project FeederWatch in the "observation" room at the Lenoir Nature Preserve. It's fun to sit there looking out the big window and counting the birds, along with socializing and munching on bagels.  We record our findings. The results are then sent to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. FeederWatch is a citizen science program sponsored by the Cornell University Ornithology Lab. We do the count for at least two hours on two consecutive days, every two weeks. 

    Feeder watching helps us learn more about the birds at our feeders. Our observations help scientists at the Ornithology Lab monitor long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. It has also become a great social event! At each FeederWatch session we usually have refreshments (e.g. bagels or donuts) provided by the person in charge of that particular session. 

   Our first session will be Saturday, November 14, 2020 and we will finish in March 30, 2021. We will count for two hours, two days in a row, approximately every two weeks.     Below are the dates and leaders for FeederWatch. Contact each leader to find the hours they will cover the feeders.

If you are interested in being a leader for a day, or if you have any questions, please contact Carol Lange at 914 668-5101, or email CarolLange@aol.com.

-+FeederWatch times are chosen by the day's leaders and will be available approximately a week ahead of time. To be placed on the email announcements of times, please send your email address to CarolLange@aol.com. If you received these time announcements last year, you're already on the list and do not have to re-register.

For the exact times, please contact Carol Lange at 914 668-5101 or CarolLange@aol.com a few days before each session to find out the exact time. We look forward to seeing you!
