Winter Bird Highlights
After each FeederWatch season, Lab scientists analyze the data submitted by FeederWatch participants. Starting in 2005, the findings were published in Winter Bird Highlights. Click on the links below to see a PDF of each publication.
Prior to 2005, the year-end reports, which were called Annual Reports, were printed in the Lab’s newsletter, BirdScope. Click the links below to view the BirdScope articles.
