Taken from email received from Emma Greig of Project FeederWatch

The FeederWatch season is around the corner. If you love watching backyard birds, Project FeederWatch helps you learn more about them and turns your observations into scientific discoveries. Sign up now to get your research kit and receive a special gift to help you identify some of our favorite visitors: hummingbirds.

hummingbird poster

Join Project FeederWatch by September 26 and we will send you a gorgeous hummingbird poster as a thank you. The life-like illustrations were done by Bartels Science Illustration Intern Megan Gnekow. We are happy to offer this limited reprint thanks to our sponsor Wild Birds Unlimited. This poster makes a beautiful gift if you don't have a place to hang it yourself.
 
What is Project FeederWatch?
Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders. You simply identify and count the birds outside your window. You can count every week between November and April, or you can count once all season—the time you spend is up to you. Using our easy online data entry, you can see all of your counts and view colorful tables, graphs, and summaries.

Who can participate?
Anyone interested in birds can participate; you don’t have to be an expert. If you attract birds to your yard with food or habitat, then you just need a window to watch and an interest in who shows up. We will send you all that you need to get started identifying the visitors.
 
New participants will receive:
• FeederWatch Handbook & Instructions
• Full-color poster of common feeder birds
• Bird-Watching Days Calendar
• Our annual report, Winter Bird Highlights
• Digital access to Living Bird magazine
• This September only: Hummingbirds poster!

Why participate?
You will learn about your backyard birds and contribute to a 30-year-and-running dataset of bird population changes. With FeederWatch, you become a scientist in your own backyard.

Sign up now for $18 ($15 for current Lab Members) and enjoy the limited print of their favorite hummingbird poster. Your participation fee keeps the project running; without it, Project FeederWatch wouldn't be possible.
