Project FeederWatch  November 2022 - April 2023

Winter Counting With Project FeederWatch By Lauren Cusimano

The FeederWatch counting season runs from November to April and is  a  survey  of  birds  that  visit  our  porches,  public  areas,  and  other outdoor spots across North America during the winter months. The program  is  exactly  what  it  sounds  like  —  you  watch  birds  as  they feed,  count  them,  and  enter  your  date  online.  According  to  the website  —  FeederWatch  —  your  findings  will  “contribute  to  a continental  data-set  of  bird  distribution  and  abundance.”  This  will also allow FeederWatch scientists to analyze “winter bird abundance and distribution.”

As bird feeders can be problematic in Alaska, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game recommends bird feeders be taken down due to bear activity from April to October. Luckily the FeederWatch data collection runs the opposite months of the year. (But here are other considerations to ensure bird safety, and some excellent tips are listed at

The program, overseen by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Birds Canada, has been around since 2016. Cost is $18 in the United States, which gets you instructional materials, digital access to Living Bird magazine and other birding publications, and more.
