Citizen Science at the Nature Center: Project FeederWatch

Shared by Melissa Donahue, Naturalist

Warner Park is participating in its 29th season of Project FeederWatch. FeederWatch is a November-April survey of birds that visit backyards, nature centers, community areas and other locales in North America. We are happy to be watching birds in the new Sandy Bivens Bird Garden on the Warner Park Nature Center Campus.

Even though the season is just getting started, we’ve already observed some pretty exciting birds!  

  • A flock of pine siskins
  • A few purple finches
  • Chickadees
  • Titmouse 
  • Cardinals 

Participate at Home

You too can participate in Project FeederWatch, from the comfort of your own home! Visit the website, create a profile, and begin surveying the birds you see in your backyard, and count yourself as a generous contributor to national research, just like our naturalists. That’s citizen science, and we’re so thankful to help educate our beloved community on ways to get involved. 


Promoting citizen science (the collection of data from nature by the general public towards a professional scientific project) is one of the strategic goals of the Warner Park Nature Center. May we all continue to connect closer and closer to the natural world, and thus find inspiration to protect it! #ProtectWarnerParks
