Feeder Bird Trends

As you travel across the continent from west to east, you will encounter different species of birds at different locations along your way. For example, you might see Western Scrub-Jays in California, Gray Jays in the Canadian Rockies, and Blue Jays in Virginia. Therefore, to interpret FeederWatch data in a meaningful way, we divide the continent into six regions. Choose a species below and start to explore!
