Help Count Backyard Birds – Join Project FeederWatch

Did you know that you can connect to nature, learn about backyard birds, and contribute to important scientific research – without leaving your home? You can with Project FeederWatch!

Our backyards are important habitats for birds year-round. To help birds, we need to understand how these habitats and the birds using them are changing over time. Your counts of winter backyard birds tell us which species are doing OK and which ones need our conservation attention.

What is Project FeederWatch?

Project FeederWatch is a joint project of Birds Canada and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology that depends on volunteers like you to help us all learn more about bird populations. It’s easy to contribute. All you need to do is:

  1. Join Project FeederWatch.
  2. Count your backyard birds periodically throughout the season (13 November 2021 – 30 April 2022).
  3. Submit your counts online at or using the new Project FeederWatch mobile app.
