Join the 40th Annual Winter Feeder Survey!
Do you love to watch the birds at your feeders over the winter months? Bird enthusiasts of all experience levels are invited to join the 40th annual Winter Feeder Survey!
A joint project between the Kalamazoo Nature Center and Michigan Audubon Society, the Winter Feeder Survey depends on citizen scientists from across Michigan, who provide valuable research. Simply observing and recording what birds visit your feeders provides information about bird population trends. The more feeders we watch, the more accurate the results. KNC supplies everything you need to get started with your count! Surveys begin in November and run through April.
If you would like to participate in this important statewide project, contact John Brenneman at (269) 381-1574 ext. 30 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
