Project FeederWatch provides an electronic newsletter to keep participants and others up-to-date on the latest FeederWatch news. Messages are typically posted once or twice a month during the season, less often in the off-season. Subscribers can opt out of the list at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each message or by following the instructions below.
The newsletter posts are sent in a format that allows us to include photos, and the messages may not display properly in older versions of email software (particularly Microsoft Outlook 2002 and 2003) or with some software settings. If you have trouble seeing the messages in your email, you can view them online by clicking the issue dates below.

If you have a spam blocking software on your computer, newsletter posts may be blocked. There are thousands of subscribers to this newsletter, so messages sent to subscribers can appear as spam (unwanted email messages) to many spam filters. If your filter allows you to choose addresses to receive email from, please set the program to allow messages from email@example.com.
Signing-up to receive the FeederWatch electronic newsletter is completely unrelated to whether or not you are signed up to participate in Project FeederWatch. Once you sign up for our electronic newsletter, you will remain subscribed (unless your email address changes or you unsubscribe per instructions below) regardless of whether you participate in FeederWatch. (Sign-up for Project FeederWatch here.)

If your email address changes, unsubscribe your old address per the instructions here. If you no longer have access to your old email address, it will automatically be purged from the list when it stops working.

Note that changing your email address for the electronic newsletter will not automatically change the address in our data entry system or in the membership database. Receiving eNews messages does not indicate that your email address is correct in other places. In order to receive an automatic username name or password reminder, your email address must be kept up-to-date in the online database by following the “Manage Account” link on the Your Data home page. To change your email address in our membership database, contact the FeederWatch office in your country.
