Project FeederWatch is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Bird Studies Canada. Please join the project for the country in which you reside.
Join now for the 2018–19 season, which runs through April 5. ID numbers needed for data entry are printed on the letter that comes in the instructional kit mailed to all first-time participants. It takes about three weeks for a kit to arrive and for an ID number to be activated online, even for renewing participants. You can start counting birds immediately, following our online instructions, and enter data after your kit arrives and your ID number is activated. If you signed up more than three weeks ago and do not have an activated ID number, contact the FeederWatch office in your country.
If you are giving FeederWatch as a gift, you may download and print a gift recipient notification certificate to give immediately.
