Project Feeder Watch! Birdwatching to Benefit Conservation…

Project Feeder Watch! Birdwatching to Benefit Conservation…

Project FeederWatch is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Birds Canada—and if you have birds in your yard, you have what you need to participate!

Project FeederWatch is conducted by people of all skill levels and backgrounds—individuals, children, families, nature centers, and bird clubs. More than 20,000 participants across the United States and Canada survey the birds that visit backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locations, and it’s not too late to join the 2021-22 FeederWatch Season, which began in mid-November and continues into April, 2022.

FeederWatch data provides insight into bird population biology that cannot be detected through other methods. Throughout the winter, participants count the number of individual birds in each observed species, collecting data that helps detect and explain gradual changes in the wintering ranges of many species.

FeederWatcher counting schedules are COMPLETELY flexible. Count your birds for as long as you like on days of your choosing. Enter your counts online. It’s that simple.

Your contribution to a data-set of bird distribution and abundance will enable scientists to piece together more accurate population maps.

Data collected by FeederWatchers helps scientists understand:

  • long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance
  • the timing and extent of winter irruptions
  • expansions or contractions in the winter ranges of feeder birds
  • foods and environmental factors that attract birds
  • how disease is spread among birds that visit feeders

And if you photograph your feathered visitors (and what’s not fun about that?!), there is also a PHOTO CONTEST.

Go to and click on the cardinal for more information. The photo entry deadline is January 24, 2022.

Let’s use our backyard birdwatching to benefit the birds that we enjoy watching!

Winners were announced Tuesday night, Oct. 12th for the 2021 GNPA Double Vision competition, in partnership with the Chatahoochee Nature Center (CNC) and Roswell Fine Arts Association (RFAA).

This is GNPA’s 6th annual Double Vision photo competition. The Exhibit, which is open for viewing at the CNC River Resource Gallery, in Roswell, Georgia, is once again part of the fall Atlanta Celebrates Photography event. It will hang at the CNC through December 1st.

Twenty-four photographic images were selected from the 176 submitted entries (all captured in Georgia or contiguous states). These same images were then interpreted by artists from the RFAA. For the exhibit, the photographic image and the artist’s interpretation hang side-by-side, to be viewed together…hence, the exhibit’s name: Double Vision.

Of the exhibited photographic images, the following winners were selected for special recognition:

  • Best in Show (image show with this article): Thomas Yackley, Yellow Rumped Warbler
  • First Place: Pamela Cather, Hide and Seek
  • Second Place: Stephen Weiss, Rose Stack
  • Third Place: Horace Hamilton, Abrams Falls Trailhead Bear
  • Honorable Mention: Morey Gers, Hibiscus Dew Drops
  • Honorable Mention: Tom Simpson, Solar Glow
